Description: 

After participating in this webinar participants will be able to:

  •  Recognize girls’ anger and their perceived options to express that anger and how their experience impacts their emotional health and future relationships as they enter adulthood
  • Learn concrete strategies to help girls build social competencies and emotional well-being now and in the future
  • Understand the impact of technology (both positive and negative) on girls’ ability to navigate relationships

About our series:
The impact of violence, abuse, neglect, disaster, war, and other harmful experiences continues long after the traumatic event has ended. Exposure to trauma is a pervasive issue that has significantly impacted the health and well-being of millions of Americans and nearly everyone seeking services in the public health and social
services systems. Understanding how trauma affects the emotional, behavioral, cognitive, social, and physical functioning of the people we care for can improve all health and social services.

All health and social service providers are welcome, including medical care providers, dentists, social workers, teachers, mental health workers, substance use disorder treatment providers, corrections officers, and community program staff, to name a few.
