  • The impact of friendship, intimacy and social cruelty on students’ lives and development  
You can also expect to:
  • Learn how to strengthen the support that you provide to students and faculty as they undergo transitions, whether between schools, into higher education or other life transitions
  • Gain insights into how your school, university or college can protect and support students and faculty from diverse cultures
  • Learn how to adopt a trauma-informed approach throughout your institution and support students and faculty experiencing traumatic grief
  • Be equipped with knowledge and important information to take back and share with your faculty and colleagues to support well-being and embed a safer culture throughout your institution
Choose from two strands:
  • Strand 1: Transitions and cross-cultural considerations 
  • Strand 2: Policy development and trauma-informed approaches
