About the Community of Practice:

The MHTTC Network's Healing Racial Violence Teamlet is proud to announce our upcoming Community of Practice, Healing School Communities: Shifting the Dominant Paradigm to Center Student Wellness, which will take place on Tuesdays beginning February 8, 2022! The purpose of this Community of Practice will be to explore the roles and responsibilities of school staff and systems in supporting a school’s healing ecosystem within the context of racial violence. Case studies from members of the school mental health workforce will also be utilized to create solutions to dilemmas around racial violence.
      

The overall objective of these Community of Practice sessions is to support the MHTTC Healing Racial Violence Teamlet’s internal focus, which is to help students, families, educators, and school mental health professionals navigate the ongoing impact of racial violence in all forms on student mental health. The Community of Practice Sessions will offer opportunities for participants to:
      

  1. Name and examine the organizational structures that lead to Racial Violence within School Communities.
  2. Explore the various mental health implications of racial violence on school ecosystems.
  3. Identify and elevate community strengths, wisdom and voice as effective strategies for healing and place them at the center in supporting mental health.
  4. Become familiar with resources and tools to address the detrimental effects of racial violence in schools, that further build protective factors, power and agency.

 

Live sessions are 90 minutes and take place on Tuesdays @ 12:30pm PT / 2:30pm CT / 3:30pm ET from February 8 through March 22. Certificates of completion will be made available to viewers of 50% (45 minutes) or more of the live sessions. CEUs are not available for these sessions. If you have not received a certificate of completion by May 15, 2022, please email Ricardo Canelo at [email protected]

Earlier this year, we hosted a two-part learning series. Healing School Communities in the Context of Racial Violence: Where do we go from here? is intended for students, families, educators and school mental health professionals who are navigating the ongoing impact of racial violence in all forms on student mental health. This forum was a continuation from a two-part learning series we hosted in 2020.
