Description: 

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, MEdTo register click here.

My marriage and family were bearing the weight of my abuse! Processing the experience makes me thankful the facilitators care so much! I felt like they guided me personally off the tracks of destruction! The deep dark hole of depression and self loathing have very little power over me now! Get to the next WoR, you'll leave the past where it belongs!"--Hope Springs alumnus, October, 2013 Registration Costs Fees start at $695 for early registration.
