Community of Practice: Building a Trauma-Informed Institution

7 February 2020

In Fall 2017, faculty at Berkeley City College were awarded grants for a Focused Inquiry Group (from BCC’s Teaching and Learning Center) and a President’s Innovation Award grant to purchase the film, Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope.  Since then, all four campuses have watched the film that launched an initiative to create a trauma-informed institution and BCC has launched an annual Summit: Solidarity in Mental Health.



  • Resilience, the Film — Anyone with a Peralta employee email address can stream this 1-hour film that tells the story of medical research into the implications of toxic stress.
