Jeanne Felter, director of the M.S. in Community and Trauma Counseling Program at Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University), spoke at a panel discussion about the impact of trauma on education.
Presented by the Mayor’s Office of Education and School District of Philadelphia, the event worked to increase awareness around trauma in education and share ways the community can become more informed about strategies and responses to working with students affected by trauma and poverty. The Jan. 24 event was held at F.S. Edmond School in the Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia. See here for more info.
Felter recently wrote a commentary for the Philadelphia Inquirer about ending the cycles of trauma and poverty for families.
