Trauma-Informed Educational Practices, MEd

Trauma-Informed Educational Practices Specialization

Build on your fundamental knowledge and skills related to teaching, learning, and student support by earning a Master of Education with a specialization in Trauma-Informed Educational Practices.

Throughout the master’s in trauma-informed education practices program, you will consider various educational settings and learner population as you learn the fundamentals of a trauma-informed approach to education. You will explore how trauma manifests in different populations, specific trauma-informed strategies for the classroom, involvement of multi-tiered systems of support, and strengthening resilience among both students and educators. This program offers an instructional approach, rather than a clinical or psychological approach. This means you will learn to address trauma, emphasizing how to understand the student experience, and educational strategies related to mitigating trauma. You will also learn to recognize how trauma impacts educational environments, and the resources needed to train teachers and administrators in practices that will allow them to meet the student in their current situation, as well as work with a diverse range of students.

In the final course of the specialization, you will demonstrate your proficiency through a capstone project. All courses must be completed prior to the capstone course.
