Responding to Critical Incidents with Care and Safe Spaces
This webinar serves all educators—pre-service, novice, and experienced. It will be helpful to college faculty and school administrators as well. The intent is to share practices used in DSST Public Schools (Denver, CO) when responding to critical incidents. DSST defines critical incidents as events that impact individuals and or groups who have been traditionally and historically marginalized and minoritized. The aim is to share best practices for setting up safe spaces for staff and students in real time while also providing resources. This webinar deals with the reality that responding to trauma in the community or country has largely fallen in the lap of P-12 educators who are not equipped to respond positively.
Participants will walk away with:
- Sample letters to staff and families,
- Best practices for setting up safe spaces for staff and students, and
- Resources to support the conduct of these conversations.
