The Intersection of Culture and Trauma: Working with Children and Families

The Intersection of Culture and Trauma: Working with Children and Families

Training Overview

In this interactive 2-hour workshop, we will explore the meaning and the value of the terms culture and trauma and how they intersect. We will explore how this intersection informs how we work within multidisciplinary teams to strengthen our systems that keep our children safe. Further, we will examine our personal values and how they inform our biases that may impact how we deliver services. Finally, we will identify strategies that will allow us to mitigate the unconscious biases that might influence our training, research, and advocacy efforts.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify a common language around culture and trauma.
  2. Discuss the meaning of culture beyond race and ethnicity.
  3. Understand that a holistic approach to care requires the integration of culturally responsive and trauma-informed practices.

Registration is Free!
