Trauma Informed Design:
A Look at Educational Environmental Design in a Post-Pandemic Environment
Christine Cowart, founder of Cowart Trauma Informed Partnership, will provide a trauma-informed framework for this discussion.
The interdisciplinary panel, led by Boston Architectural College faculty, will address the need for a trauma-informed approach when designing K-12 schools, and explore the role of designers in providing safe and sustainable futures in educational environments. The discussion will include an exploration of offering design solutions to social inequities.
