WHAT IS MEETING THE MOMENT?
“A Trusted Space: Meeting the Moment” is a free and accessible docu-training series comprised of six films designed to reach educators, students, and all who care about and serve our young people. Included are materials designed to support education leadership in their ongoing effort to support their staff and students as recovery, in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, remains elusive and challenging.
Building upon the award-winning film, “A Trusted Space: Redirecting Grief to Growth,” “Meeting the Moment” expands upon the urgent need for California's schools to create trusted, healthy spaces for all students and the staff who support them. Educators do not need to be healers, they simply need to create atmospheres where healing and learning can happen naturally.
The series brings together diverse voices from the frontlines of education to take a deeper look at the social, emotional, mental and academic challenges that persist in a pandemic recovery environment. Through a comprehensive examination of scientific research and expert insights, the series offers free and practical, no-prep-time strategies to support educators in addressing these pressing issues.
