Trauma Informed Librarianship
October 4 – October 31, 2021
This course introduces the idea of trauma informed care to those working in libraries or all types. It reviews the six principles of trauma-informed care and how they work together ultimately creating a trauma responsive workforce and organization. It covers the four R’s of trauma informed care and the three concepts of trauma-informed practice.
This course uses readings, reflections, activities, and discussion to guide learners through the concepts, dynamics, and practices we address. This course is part of the Certificate in Disability Access and Inclusion. Learning objectives: Cultivate awareness of trauma and its lifelong effects on the general population with an emphasis on how we, as library workers, can best support the information needs of our community; enhance understanding and create empathy for others as part of our professional practice; appraise behaviors in the community, organization, and in oneself that may be trauma responses and develop mitigation plans for improvement; and integrate knowledge skills and attitudes from this class into your professional practice and workplace.
CALL SPONSORED: In order to gain the most impact from learning events sponsored by the CALL grant, we ask that all participants engage fully (attend, participate, discuss and share). If you are unable or not willing to agree to this, please be kind and leave a seat or place for someone else.
