Using trauma-informed approaches in our work with youth means listening with a different ear--one that hears the child within and recognizes earlier traumatic experiences that may be shaping current behavior. During this 60 minute webinar, we will define trauma and explore the types most often experienced by children. We will make the connections between earlier exposure to trauma and current sexual, reproductive, and parenting behaviors among youth. Finally, we will present examples of how youth-supportive services may differ if conducted through a trauma-informed lens. Presenters: Pat Paluzzi, CNM, DrPH & Deborah Chilcoat, MEd.
