This course will explore the ways in which chronic stress, trauma, and adverse life experiences affect learning. It will also introduce some teaching approaches and strategies that promote emotional and psychological well-being to help students learn more efficiently. We will look at our roles as educators in helping learners practice healthy coping skills, develop supports, and connect to community resources. In addition, we will explore the value of expressive arts as a way to build community, encourage creative imagination, and enhance mental health for adult learners.
“I was very excited when I enrolled in this course as I wanted to get a grip on the stress in my life as well as my students’ lives. I was surprised by all of the different ways to help alleviate the stresses. This course gave me some peace and my fellow students provided great insights for me to ponder. The best piece is I was able to communicate better and problem solve with my peers.” Jim Hirshouer, Cochise College, AZ
