The faculty, staff, and doctoral scholars of the Department of Gender and Sexuality Studies continue to stand in solidarity with survivors of sexual violence, and with the student activists working to dismantle rape culture at USC. As a continuation of a series of public conversations and forums hosted by GSS, this Trauma-Informed Pedagogy Virtual Teach-In is coordinated in partnership with the PhD student-led research group Multidisciplinary Intersectional Approaches to the Study of Violence and Trauma
Open to all disciplines and departments at USC, we invite educators, faculty, teaching assistants, and staff members to join us on December 8, 2021 from 10:00am-Noon PST for a workshop focused on trauma-informed pedagogy led by Director of Relationship and Sexual Violence Prevention and Services (RSVP) Dr. Brenda Ingram. Following Q&A with Dr. Ingram, the latter part of this session will be participatory and discussion-based, allowing space for participants to openly express some of their own concerns, and propose solutions in the context of this current moment. Overall, this session will focus on how educators and staff are navigating showing up for our students, ourselves, and one another, in ways that are trauma-informed. We look forward to being in community with you.

What Do We Mean By Trauma-Informed Pedagogy?

In light of the prevalence of trauma that college students faced in childhood and while on campus, trauma-informed pedagogy has been an intervention that supports both faculty and students in the classroom and beyond. This presentation will give a brief overview of trauma-informed pedagogy and how to implement some of the practices to support academic achievement and personal development of students while supporting faculty to reduce their stress and burnout.

Dr. Ingram is a clinical assistant professor of psychiatry who directs the Relationship and Sexual Violence Prevention and Services (RSVP) Program of USC Student Health. She chairs the trauma-informed work group of USC Student Health. She has an extensive background in gender-based violence and leading organizations in becoming trauma-informed.
