How do we begin to imagine freedom and healing given all the ways we have been socialized into punitive and punishment models? How do we heal from carceral logic? Join us for an interactive presentation with Dr. Farima Pour-Khorshid, who will introduce participants to "healing centered engagement,” a critical approach to education that honors the complex experiences of students and educators, and centers collective healing and well being within educational spaces.

Farima Pour-Khorshid, Ph.D. is a professor of Teacher Education at the University of San Francisco (USF) in California and holds leadership roles in grassroots collectives such as the Teachers 4 Social Justice, the People’s Education Movement, and the national Education for Liberation Network. She has over a decade of experience teaching at the elementary level as well as lecturing, supervising and supporting educators locally, nationally and internationally through her roles as a university professor, teacher supervisor, educational consultant and grassroots community organizer.
