Learning Communities

The School of Social Work has designed learning communities to give students opportunities to form social and professional friendships and explore new ideas. In these groups, faculty and students explore issues affecting the communities with which they work.

Trauma Integration Initiative Learning Community

The TII Learning Community is an informal space to come together to reflect on the impact that trauma work can have on us as individuals and to share support and resources. Meeting monthly over the course of the year, each LC will be a mix of presentation of a concept related to vicarious trauma and self care, and informal discussion among participants focused on skill implementation.  At the end of the year, participants will have a framework for understanding vicarious trauma and a foundational skill set for managing the impact of working with trauma and trauma-impacted populations. Meetings will be held via Zoom, and are co-led by Dean Teresa Schirmer, Dean Sue Coleman and Professor Kathleen Flinton. 

October 5, 6-7 p.m.
November 2, 6-7 p.m.
December 7, 6-7 p.m.

Please register here to get on the TII list. A Zoom link will be sent the day prior to each meeting.
