Webinar: Trauma-Informed Library Work – Deepening Awareness and Taking Action
December 7 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EST
As a follow-up to Nisha’s presentation, “Trauma-Informed Librarianship: What is it and what can it look like?” this workshop will allow participants opportunities for individuals to deepen their awareness about how trauma shows up in their respective workplaces, explore the Trauma-Informed Road Map, and think of small but actionable ways to be more trauma-informed in library work.
About the Presenter:
Nisha Mody, MLIS, MA CCC-SLP (she/her) is a South Asian American feminist healing coach, writer, and librarian. She worked as a Health & Life Sciences Librarian, serving as liaison to the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and as the Associate Director of the Network of the National Library of Medicine, Pacific Southwest Region. Prior to entering librarianship, Nisha worked as a speech-language pathologist with children and adults. Throughout her work, Nisha has consistently valued connection, compassion, curiosity, storytelling, and justice, all of which led her to becoming a healing coach with a trauma-informed approach. She teaches and talks about imagining and incorporating trauma-informed practices in libraries and in our everyday lives, centering the ways systems of oppression and intergenerational trauma affect us deeply.
