This is the second session for Healing School Communities: Shifting the Dominant Paradigm to Center Student Wellness, a Community of Practice 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 session explores the limitations of schooling as a way to imagine health-centered frameworks of education. This Community of Practice session also offers opportunities for participants to:
- Name and examine the organizational structures that lead to Racial Violence within School Communities.
- Explore the various mental health implications of racial violence on school ecosystems.
- Identify and elevate community strengths, wisdom and voice as effective strategies for healing and place them at the center in supporting mental health.
- Become familiar with resources and tools to address the detrimental effects of racial violence in schools, that further build protective factors, power and agency.
