Building a Safe and Inclusive Community in Health Education
In the health education space, students are often asked to reflect on their own
health practices and explore potentially sensitive topics. In order to develop student
knowledge of health skills and concepts, teachers must first create a space
where students feel safe and empowered to be themselves. In this training,
participants will begin by understanding the role their own identities, along with
student identities, play in creating safe and inclusive health education classrooms.
The remainder of the training will be devoted to learning key frameworks
and principles of trauma-informed and inclusive teaching. This hands-on training
will give participants an opportunity to learn about these teaching practices and
practice applying them through scenarios, interactive activities, and discussion.
