A couple of weeks ago, Dr. Sara Truebridge (#resiliencechat) challenged everyone to think of all experiences as lived experiences instead of automatically assuming that people will perceive these experiences as we do. She explained that some people will dust themselves off and continuing pushing through while others may call their experience trauma. Regardless of what people choose, it should be their choice. As educators, our job is to provide support for students who may have lived experiences which dramatically change and/or negatively impact their lives. Listen to the Digital PD Podcast episode on using a trauma-informed educator approach towards behavior to learn non-clinical strategies that you can add to your current practices. Then if you are interested in learning about trauma from a different lens, you can read Dr. Truebridge’s full article below. Thanks, Dr. Truebridge for changing my mindset on this pivotal topic. From now on, I will be sure to allow my students to decide and continue to promote resilience.
