Following a decade of increasing stress events in the population we teach, faculty have seen an intensification of mental and emotional fragility among our students during Covid and, indeed, among the professionals charged with teaching and supporting students including an erosion in interpersonal skills and civil discourse. Drawing on cutting edge neurological, psychological, and emotional research to explore trauma and ACEs informed techniques, Gabor Mate’s compassionate curiosity mode, Non Violent Communication ethical communication practices, and Terrance Real’s Relational Life Therapy trainings, this talk will focus on classroom ethical and pyscho-emotional challenges and opportunities for growth and co-regulatory practices to support curriculum engagement and development of the “whole student”.
* The Civility Week Student Activity Card enables students to earn raffle tickets for event attendance. Cards are available for pick-up in SLC-105, stamped at in-person events, and an honor system is used to self-stamp at remote live events. Cards should be returned to SLC-105 at the end of Civility Week. Raffle winners will be contacted via email to collect gift certificates and Brookdale gear!
