WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Princeton Public Schools
"As educators, we are often conditioned to think of childhood trauma in terms of dramatic events. We think, for example, of physical or sexual abuse, the death or loss of a loved one, the witnessing of domestic or community violence. Through my work with Dr. Tara Doaty, I have come to see that micro-aggressions as a result of implicit bias can be equally traumatic. The daily indignities of discrimination add up. Over time, students can disengage, act out or simply stop coming to school. The psychological harm of feeling “less than” is real. If we are fully to address equity in our schools, we must expand our understanding of trauma-informed care ".
"My favorite part about the training was learning about the connection between brain development, discrimination, emotional development, and academic success. This was really enlightening, and Dr. Doaty's presentation style was really engaging, introducing some levity to the discussion but also delivering some difficult messages. If she is charged with training our staff and faculty, then I feel really good about that.".

Although Dr. Tara is an expert in her field, she didn’t make any assumptions on what we needed. She connected with our leadership team in advance to hear, and educate herself on what our needs where and then she took the time to customize a series that was catered specifically for our group.
Why was this so important to us? One of the biggest challenges our group has often voiced as it relates to their career was that they felt like “they” don’t hear us. At the end of Dr. Tara’s series with us, the feedback we received from our group was overwhelmingly positive. She was able to provide a safe space for our group to express themselves and she equipped them with tools that would help them better navigate through some of the challenges and stresses they were facing. In the end it was a win win for our group. What a difference it makes #WhenTheyHearUs
