Description

Trauma-informed care is widely discussed in literature related to social work and psychology, however, trauma-informed care principles can be applied everywhere. To put it simply, trauma-informed care asks "What happened to you?" instead of "What's wrong with you?" However, it isn't easy to ask this question directly in libraries as opposed to social work and/or psychology. However, there are ways to create trauma-informed practices in librarianship. It gives regard and consideration to individual trauma and well as the systemic trauma that comes with racism, sexism, transphobia, ableism, homophobia, ageism, and other forms of oppression, especially related white supremacy and capitalism.

With anti-racism committees and EDI-focused library leadership positions being created in libraries, especially after the murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and more, the impact trauma on the body, intergenerationally, and how trauma affects our nervous system is not discussed at length In this workshop, participants will be presented with the principles of trauma-informed care and its effect on the nervous system and will imagine ways to apply it to different aspects of librarianship.

Participants will relate trauma-informed care principles to their professional settings, examine how the nervous system is affected by trauma, and integrate trauma-informed principles into library-specific contexts.
