Social Emotional Well-being and Wholistic Trauma-sensitive Practices (Burnaby) - Spring 2021


Program capacities provide a reflective focus for documenting and selfassessing learning. At frequent intervals throughout the program, participants and their mentors refer to the capacities to assess progress, to set new goals and to create direction for further learning in field studies. At the end of the program, each participant’s comprehensive portfolio includes a synthesis of learning and self-assessment of growth in these capacities, supported by evidence of learning. This program provides opportunities to develop these capacities:

  • Demonstrate dispositions of pedagogical sensitivity within practices of caring for the self and for others.
  • Cultivate reflective capacities that support wholistic social-emotional development and self-regulatory practices.
  • Explore traditions of contemplative and embodied inquiry to foster mindful engagement with children and youth.
  • Expand theoretical understandings of pedagogical relationality and attunement to children and youth.
  • Create professional learning communities that are attentive to practices of self-and-other integration and care of the self.
  • Develop orientations of inquiry and critical reflection to understand and develop effective teaching practices.
