Guided Pathways Workshop
Presenter: Kara Finch, Program Head of Human Services, Stanly CC
Trauma is widespread. It is an important topic for professionals in higher education because a student’s history of trauma influences their learning capacity. The negative effects of trauma can interfere with a student’s persistence and completion. Trauma also results in fear, mistrust, and inflexibility. Faculty and staff who are aware of trauma and their effects can better recognize them among their students and create a safer environment. In this session, you will learn about the prevalence of trauma among college students and gain a better understanding of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and their lifelong impact. Additionally, you will how you and your institution can become more trauma-informed and strategies for trauma-informed practice.
