Understanding Trauma

Past Event: 2024

This event has already passed.

A workshop for DYCD funded organizations 

Join us for this online session on understanding trauma. Trauma affects large numbers of our population, and when unaddressed, the mental, physical, and emotional effects can last a lifetime.  Learn the basics on trauma, trauma coping and how to identify trauma/PTSD symptoms especially in youth and young adults, ages 5-24. Participants will reflect on ways exposure to traumatic events or circumstances has impacted the youth they work with, themselves, and the culture of their community; as well as ways to combat the psychological harm.

This workshop is intended for DYCD funded organizations. This professional development opportunity is provided at no cost to you but has a value of $230 for DYCD. If you register for and are subsequently unable to attend this session you are responsible for cancelling your registration or risk being waitlisted for future events.
