Educator Trauma, Vicarious Trauma, and Resilience in the Classroom: Development of Coping Strategies and Supports or Future Educators
Evonn Welton, University of Akron
Shernavaz Vakil, University of Akron
Lynn Kline, University of Akron
Trauma informed education is increasingly recognized as very important in the school setting. While it is recognized that trauma and unresolved anxiety can have very negative impact on p-12 students, the impact of either direct or indirect trauma on the classroom teacher has received less attention. This presentation aligns best with Innovations in Teaching as it stresses the need to address these issues in pre-service programs so that burn-out is minimized and access to available supports and classroom satisfaction is maximized.
