Section Description

This course will provide students with the theoretical foundation and conceptual frameworks that relate to building resilience for children, youth and families who have experienced trauma and adversity. This fully online course aims to help in-service and preservice professionals in education, child welfare, health, and mental health gain a common language and knowledge base that will support equitable service delivery through the use of collaborative, family engaged, & trauma responsive practices. Specifically, it will introduce students to core concepts related to resiliency, equity, attachment, child development, family systems, and trauma- responsive & evidence informed practices. Students will leave this course with the skills necessary to put on a “trauma lens” when engaging with families and communities.

Evaluation

We use a grading system called a Labor Based Grading Contract in several of the Certificate program classes. Contract grading essentially removes grades from the classroom on an assignment basis, but still results in a final course grade. Traditional writing assessments are grounded in whiteness and privilege. Our hope with this model is that it will encourage a critical and reflective space for you to engage with the course material, lower stress, accentuate equity, and emphasize learning over grading. More recently contract grading has been cited as best assessment practices for creating anti-racist classrooms (Inoue, 2019). The contract grading system will be based on the amount of work you choose to complete for the class. If you complete an assignment you receive the points. Final Course Grades are recorded as letter grades. Graduate Students do not receive a grade of D. Student grade point averages (GPA) are calculated from quality point equivalents noted below under course assignments.
