Trauma-Informed Educators - Podcast

In this episode, Dr. Kay Ayre and Dr. Govind Krishnamoorthy of the Trauma-Informed Educators podcast speak with Megan Marcus from FuelEd about:

  • how FuelEd approaches trauma-informed work with educators
  • how attachment theory can help educators better understand their students and themselves
  • some traits of secure-attachment that all educators can work on, and seek out, in their relationships

Bearing witness to the emotional pain and challenges of students can take its toll on educators. Under pressure to support students, teachers may be forced to confront their own social and emotional challenges. The social neuroscience of education sheds light on experiences and needs linked to the common humanity we share with our students.

Trauma Informed Education with Dr. Kay Ayre · Emotionally Intelligent Educators with Megan Marcus

A secure attachment figure provides opportunities for autonomy for their students. So much of behavioralism and the structures in school go against this autonomy and are focused on how can we control students as opposed to giving them the trust to be able to flourish and move towards greater independence.
