Where the light enters: Hope and healing through trauma-informed education
In October 2021 we hosted an online festival entitle ‘Where the light enters: Hope and healing through trauma-informed education’.
The event featured a stellar line-up of national and international experts including world renowned author, Dr Gabor Mate, as well as Professor Kimberly Schonert-Reichl and Dr Sharon Lambert; contributions from teachers, students and Experts by Experience; mindfulness with Dr Dave McCormack; and insights from the UK Operation Encompass.
The event also featured a powerful film produced by Crooked House Youth Theatre on the theme of trauma and the important role of teachers in students’ lives.
