Teachers supporting children, whānau, and communities post-disaster

Coming up

Monday May 15
7.30PM (NZST)

Professor Carol Mutch (University of Auckland) will share her research from over 12 years of supporting schools through different disasters and crises both in Aotearoa and the wider Asia-Pacific. In particular, she will discuss how the role of teachers change as communities respond to and recover from the event, as schools reopen, and as children return with different levels of trauma. Carol will suggest ways in which teachers can:

  • Look after yourselves
  • Balance your changing roles post-disaster
  • Help your students process their experiences
  • Support their whānau; and
  • Engage with wider community initiatives

While Carol has most experience working with school-communities, this webinar will also be relevant to early childhood teachers. It will be particularly relevant to those teachers and communities that have been affected by the recent weather events across New Zealand.
