Building Trauma-Informed Services for Children, Youth, and Parents Impacted by Domestic Violence is a 10-part webinar series for domestic violence advocates, supervisors, and mental health clinicians working in DV programs. Through this series, participants will gain enhanced understanding and practical strategies for supporting survivors and their children to address challenges, promote resilience, and heal from the traumatic effects of interpersonal violence.
The series builds on a core curriculum, Children Exposed to Domestic Violence, written by Patricia Van Horn, PhD, in collaboration with NCDVTMH and will offer practical tools, tips, and discussion guides for creating trauma-informed child and family-centered programming.
This webinar examines how doing this work, and in particular, working with children, may affect us. This webinar offers practical strategies for enhancing self-awareness, dealing with stress on the job, fostering our own resilience, and developing organizational supports that can help sustain us in this work.
