Obstructing the Steady Flow of the School-to-Prison Pipeline by Creating Trauma-Sensitive Schools

The phenomenon of the school-to-prison pipeline features an overrepresentation of children who are racial minorities and recipients of SPED, whose special educational needs go unrecognized and unmet who then become habitual status offenders charged with truancy, ungovernability, elopement, etc. These children are shuttled into the juvenile justice system for behavioral issues that have traditionally been handled within the school. Once children are caught up in the juvenile justice system and become known as status offenders, they are more likely to become incarcerated adults. Many of the children who are status offenders have education-related disabilities, hence their inclusion in SPED programs. Children with education-related disabilities, such as ADHD, can display challenging behaviors familiar to many teachers. But what is not as well understood is that trauma –relational, nonrelational, and toxic—can also mask itself as a learning disability. Cognitive and emotional troubles that transpire in reply to trauma such as difficulty concentrating, dysregulated affect, irritability, and hyperarousal can mimic ADHD symptomatology or frustrate it resulting in diagnostic confusion in recognizing what is PTSD and what is a learning disability. Children who are trauma victims and survivors have an inability to feel secure, even more so when their home lives are disorganized and the communities are as dysregulated as the children themselves, making it all the more important to create a sanctuary environment within the schools. Among the goals of the seminar are to explain the necessity of creating trauma-sensitive environments in classrooms that that will benefit children with and without trauma backgrounds and to describe the process of creating such sanctuary.

Saving Sight with Dr. Andrew Lam

Dr. Andrew Lam, an author and retinal surgeon at Baystate Medical Center, will be discussing his recently published books, Saving Sight and Two Sons of China. Dr. Lam is currently an Assistant Professor at Tufts University School of Medicine.

In Saving Sight, Dr. Lam takes readers into the operating room, revealing the stress and joy of a job that enables him to turn darkness into light, and in which failure can mean blindness. The book reveals an unflinching look at a surgeon’s approach to cataracts, LASIK, macular degeneration and more. Lam also blends his personal story with profiles of ophthalmology’s greatest heroes, innovators whose inventions saved the sight of millions around the world.

Prior to becoming a surgeon Dr. Lam earned a history degree from Yale. His second book, Two Sons of China, is an historical novel from a forgotten theater of World War II. The book centers on an unlikely friendship between an American soldier and a Chinese Communist guerilla fighter who, despite their deeply held, clashing convictions, form a bond of brotherhood in battle.

Andrew Lam, M.D., was born in Philadelphia and raised in central Illinois. He graduated summa cum laude in history from Yale University, where he studied military history and U.S.-East Asian relations. He then attended medical school at the University of Pennsylvania, followed by specialty training in ophthalmology and retina surgery at the Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, where he also served as a chief resident. He is a partner at New England Retinal Consultants and an attending surgeon at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, Massachusetts. He resides in Longmeadow, Massachusetts with his wife and four children.

The event is free and open to the public.
