Children who experience multiple adverse or traumatic childhood experiences, such as exposure to violence or negative family relationships, have the highest levels of risk for negative outcomes throughout life. Trauma-informed care can be implemented in any type of service setting. These programs develop practices acknowledging trauma, its impact, and the prevention of further traumatization.
Join us for this experience as we:•learn about trauma and its impact on development;
•understand adolescent behaviors in the context of trauma;
•learn about the ARC Model and its use; and
•understand what trauma-informed care consists of in youth programming.
