Prison Health

Trauma-informed Pedagogy.


I participate in the Tufts University Prison Initiative at Tisch College (TUPIT). In my role with TUPIT, I teach the Health and Human Rights course at MCI Concord.

Additionally, I support ongoing research efforts that focus on trauma-informed pedagogical approaches that support learning while healing the spirit.

Currently, I am working with colleagues to launch a trauma-responsive health training initiative in collaboration with transdiciplinary partners to focus on health and well being.

I am working to engage in mindful monitoring and evaluation of an intervention strategy that seeks to reduce recidivism and promote health and wellness among prisoners and their extended sociocultural networks.

“Salvation fits into a unified view of the entire world, and yet it is also gritty, localized, and contextual. It is grounded in concrete experiences of the world. It must always look, feel, and taste like something.”
