Webinar with Professor Carol Mutch
Ready to watch?
Professor Carol Mutch (University of Auckland) shares 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 discusses 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 suggests 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.
