Trauma Informed Educators Network - Podcast

FuelEd Partners Megan Marcus Dr. Kelley Munger speak with Mathew Portell of the Trauma Informed Educators Network podcast where they discuss developing trauma-informed educators.

In this episode of the Trauma-Informed Educators Network Podcast with Mathew Portell, he speaks with FuelEd Partners Megan and Kelley as they discuss how educators cannot possibly address the social-emotional needs of students or be truly “trauma-informed” if they have not processed and acknowledged their own trauma and social-emotional needs.

"Like student social-emotional learning (SEL), educator SEL is not, and can’t be, a flash in the pan. Growing educators as whole people requires schools to become places where secure relationships and adult development happen every day in the regular course of work."
