VIRTUAL

With the rise in natural disasters, disease and conflict worldwide impacting over 65 million people (UNHRC, 2018), the number of children who have experienced trauma and violence is on the rise. Thus, a compassion-based framework in education which supports student well-being and equity becomes even more pressing. Research suggests that taking this increasingly holistic approach to education improves students’ academic success and well-being and reduces educator stress and burnout. In this talk, the elements of a compassion-based framework in education will be discussed and applied specifically to supporting refugee students in Ontario.
