THE W.I.T.C.H. Training
THE W.I.T.C.H. (Wound Intervention Through Care and Healing) Professional Development Training is a 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 of the same name (THE W.I.T.C.H.) that depicts the trauma-infused “everyday life” of Black high school students in low-income and under-resourced communities. THE W.I.T.C.H. 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.
