We must understand trauma and how it affects communities, in order to prevent violence effectively in communities impacted by trauma. Please join the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), in collaboration with Prevention Institute and Development Services Group, Inc. (DSG), for a May 20 webinar, “A Focus on Trauma: Integrating Trauma-Informed Approaches and Moving Toward Trauma Prevention.”
WEDNESDAY, May 20*
11:00 am-12:30 pm PT/ 2:00 pm-3:30 pm ET
Together, we’ll discuss trauma and its transmission, the evolution of our understanding of trauma, and the difference between individual and community-oriented approaches to trauma. As we learn more about trauma, it is becoming clear that trauma cannot be solved by focusing only on after-the-fact, one- person-at-a-time strategies. Increasingly, advocates and academics are calling for more attention to promising prevention approaches that impact whole communities. In this webinar, we’ll highlight different frameworks and models of trauma-informed approaches in order to tailor prevention work to communities impacted by trauma. We’ll also identify tools and resources to support ongoing, innovative partnerships to prevent trauma in the first place.
