About the documentary:
A Trusted Space is a documentary film and curriculum for educators, counselors, school administrators, parents, and others on how to mitigate the effects of grief, trauma, anxiety, and other emotional stressors that have impacted both students and teachers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. The film features leading experts in trauma-informed education and is designed to help educators better understand the complex issues and feelings that they and their students are coping with, and to provide strategies to redirect grief into growth by building a safe and trusted emotional space – ultimately creating a better environment for learning and inspiring more resilient students.
