Trauma-Informed Lens Podcast
Megan Marcus & Kelley Munger join the show to discuss Trauma-Informed Schools
Posted on March 24, 2021
In this episode, Matt speaks with Megan Marcus and Kelley Munger from FuelEd about how educators can serve as secure attachment figures, with the power to heal student trauma through the relationships they build, and the need for educators to first do their own healing. We also explore the power of providing simple and safe places for educators within school culture to receive healing from their own trauma.
FuelEd is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to grow emotionally intelligent educators who build relationship-driven schools. The organization envisions a world where educator training and support is reimagined to prioritize educators’ emotional intelligence, emotional health, and interpersonal skills. FuelEd was founded based on Megan Marcus’ experience serving as a lead researcher for the book, The Social Neuroscience of Education by Dr. Louis Cozolino which highlights the science behind how relationships drive learning, social and emotional development, and can even heal trauma. Over the course of the last decade, we have synthesized research from developmental psychology, counseling psychology, and social neuroscience research into practical, interactive, and experiential training and counseling for thousands of educators.
