The path to committing violent and destructive acts to oneself and others often begins with traumatic wounds that trigger shame and humiliation.

Dr. Jessie Klein, author of The Bully Society, brings her keen insights to highlight some of the institutional and social influences that perpetuate and/or aggravate the wound- to-violence cycles, for example, harsh verbal family discipline; systemic school bullying; oppressive race, class, and gender expectations; commodified and aggressive social media relationships; and a wider culture of normalized violence, including unchecked and routinized microaggressions.

This conference enables attendees to recognize, and begin to reverse, the conditions associated with isolation, depression, anxiety, and hostility in the lives of the children, adolescents and adults with whom we work.

Dr. Klein will discuss and demonstrate practical, relevant, high-impact prevention and intervention practices that enable schools and other institutions to be compassionate communities. In schools that are trauma-sensitive empathic communication among students and between students and faculty serves to restore and solidify relationships that foster emotional and academic growth.

Objectives:

  1. Participants will understand that traumatic wounds that trigger shame and humiliation can potentially lead to committing violent and destructive acts to oneself and others.
  2. Participants will identify institutional and social influences that perpetuate and/or aggravate the wound- to-violence cycles.
  3. Participants will identify the components of restorative relationships that can potentially break wound- to-violence cycles.
  4. Participant will gain tools to develop trauma-sensitive cultures that foster healthy relationships with self and others, as well as emotional and academic growth.
