A Theatre-Based Professional Development Training
P.O.W.W.E.R. Training is a professional development program and DEI initiative that uses theatre, facilitated dialogue and action planning to raise awareness among educators/mental health practitioners about the severity and impact of trauma on Black students, especially in urban regions.
The training is centered around the one-person stage play (The Danger of Hope) that depicts the trauma-infused “everyday life” of Black high school students in low-income and under-resourced communities. The P.O.W.W.E.R. Training uses performance as a vehicle to:
Foster empathy for the experiences of Black youth,
Discuss ways that educators/ mental health practitioners engage with Black youth in educational settings, and
Provide a space for educators/ mental health practitioners to examine examples of “misconduct” in a low risk setting.
...and much, much more!
