This presentation will introduce participants to the principles of Restorative Justice and its potential to empower healthy relationships, repair harm while transforming conflict, and create just and equitable environments. It will explore how those who work with youth can create restorative cultures within their contexts so that when harm or conflict arise, they have established relationships of support for themselves and those they serve.

Join us for this experience and learn as we:

  • Build a broad understanding of Restorative Justice as a theory and practice
  • Integrate concepts of repairing harm, establishing healthy relationships and transforming conflict into your work culture
  • Become empowered to apply new skills and ways of thinking in their interactions with youth and families you serve

Join us for this presentation to explore the true meaning of “trauma-informed” and how it impacts our clients, our colleagues and ourselves.

 Attendees will gain an actionable approach to creating a trauma-informed workplace and career, using the definition laid forth by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

 You will work to identify personal renewal goals that align with SAMHSA’s trauma-informed definition and be able to:

  • realize the work in which they engage can produce vicarious trauma, and why;
  • recognize signs of vicarious trauma in self, clients and colleagues;respond to signs and enact a care plan; and 
  • understand the importance of an ongoing care plan to reduce and prevent re-traumatization.

About This Event

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, children must have good mental health to reach their full potential. Mentally healthy children reach developmental and emotional milestones, learn beneficial social skills, and have a positive healthy quality of life in home, school and in their communities. 

Mental Health America reports that 76% of youth in the United States do not receive treatment for mental health issues. Stigma is a key barrier that prevents youth from seeking or continuing the mental health treatment they need. By reducing stigma, we can create an environment that offers hope and acceptance to those who currently suffer in silence.

Join us for this experience and learn as we: 

  • better understand what stigma is and the impact stigma has on individuals and communities
  • discuss how to identify and overcome stigma in ourselves and our communities in order to help improve mental health outcomes for youth.
