Funding Announcement | Dr. Nathalie Reid

Congratulations to Dr. Nathalie Reid, Director of the Child Trauma Research Centre, who has received a SHRF grant of $9,960 for her project, “Building a Facilitator Community to Create a Microcredential in Trauma-Informed/Sensitive Pedagogies and Practices in Support of Educator and Student Mental Health.”

The research on Adverse Childhood Experiences has highlighted the importance of approaching education with an understanding of the physiological, social, emotional, spiritual, and academic impacts of trauma and adversity on our students, including the impact of the residential school system, poverty and systemic barriers in our society. Findings from the University of Regina’s Drs. Jerome Cranston and Nathalie Reid point to educators’ desire for guidance in relation to trauma-informed practices. Recognizing the need for knowledge sharing and professional development that encompasses both Indigenous and non-Indigenous ways of knowing, the Child Trauma Research Centre and Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation Professional Learning have partnered to create a Saskatchewan-based and delivered microcredential in trauma-informed/sensitive pedagogies and practices.” Source: Nine projects aimed at advancing reconciliation in Saskatchewan funded in Research Connections
