The Fall 2019 Diversity Conference, From Trauma and Grief to Resilience and Recovery, will explore the socio-historical and cultural factors that impact how trauma-informed care is practiced when taking into consideration issues of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, and other environmental factors. Trauma-informed care recognizes the pervasive nature of trauma and promotes environments of healing and recovery, rather than practices and services that may inadvertently re-traumatize. Speakers will address areas of trauma experienced by under-served populations and ways to avoid triggering or exacerbating symptoms. The conference will inform discussions about how college- and community-based services and learning environments can deliver holistic student supports.
