Trauma Informed Faculty Workshops 

Educating our faculty and staff on mental health, empathy, and trauma.

How it works...

Policy written by VP Candidate: Ray Epstein

InnovateTU plans to implement a trauma education program for faculty and staff in the coming school year. This will address sensitivity to mental health and sexual trauma. The Network for Victim Recovery of DC (or NVRDC)  currently offers a variety of trauma-informative workshops, some of which are free of charge. They have worked closely with University of Maryland, and often offer these workshops virtually–bridging their geographical gap between home base and Temple. 


Ray Epstein spent her past summer working at NVRDC, undergoing their workshops and being trained in their peer education program. With pre-existing close connections, we believe this is a goal we can realize.
