Introduction to Trauma Informed Librarianship

Introduction to Trauma Informed Librarianship

SEFLIN

Trauma-informed care can help inform our library spaces and services by giving us the skills we need to serve our diverse communities equitably. A trauma-informed library understands the unique needs of trauma survivors, provides positive service, and unbiased information. This webinar will introduce trauma-informed principles and how they can be applied to library spaces and services to create opportunities for healing.

Participants will be able to:

  • Describe the importance of trauma-informed care in library spaces and services.
  • Identify some ways trauma-informed principles can be demonstrated in libraries.
  • Consider the ways in which we can move towards healing with deliberate choices through a trauma-informed lens.
