Given the disproportionate number of youth of color in the foster care and juvenile justice system, it’s imperative for providers, caregivers and natural support people to provide culturally relevant services. This training will explore cultural perspectives on trauma, healing, and resiliency. With a greater cultural understanding of these concepts, providers will be able to increase their engagement with system involved youth and families in more culturally meaningful ways.
