EDUC 401 F: Mental Health and a Place: A Path to Resistance in Education

  • Date/Time: Mondays 10:30 AM – 11:50 AM
  • Location: SAV 136
  • Facilitator: Kaleb Germinaro, kalebg@uw.edu
  • SLN: 14165


This course will address how communities of color experience trauma and how trauma has been moderated by systems of oppression and perpetuated across ecological systems. We will discuss how these different systems have influenced the trauma of communities of color while also addressing the various ways preventative work is taking place in and out of school. We will also address the multiple solutions to this problem by giving insight to systemic and individual approaches being taken up in this work around, what we like to call, mental health equity.
