As documented by the work of Nadine Harris-Burke and others, one in eight children experience significant trauma in their lives, and these numbers have been exacerbated by the pandemic. This three-hour workshop will introduce participants to best practices in the field of Trauma Informed Teaching Practices through music and dance. The workshop will begin with a demonstration of effective, developmentally appropriate music and dance activities that are presented using the techniques based on the most current research in the field. The demonstration will be followed by a hands-on workshop, where educators will work in partnership with Hannah to integrate the techniques into their classrooms. Developed for teachers of grades K-3 and adaptable for older grades.
