Meeting Trauma with Movement

Wednesday, January 22, 2020


Presented By Alyshia Boagni and Theresa Wasiloski

For teachers and counselors of grades K–12

Trauma can impact students’ ability to access their education. In this workshop, school counselor Alyshia Boagni and movement artist Theresa Wasiloski will lead participants through recognizing signs of trauma in students, as well as understanding how trauma affects a child’s learning experience. Participants will develop strategies for creating trauma-informed lesson plans and will learn exercises that use dance as a tool for releasing trauma and empowering students through expression and communication.
