Training Description

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 3-hour webinar 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.

Learning Objectives

1. Participants will be able to discuss the importance of understanding trauma through a cultural lens when supporting system involved youth.

2. Participants will be able to identify at least 2 ways culture impacts healing for system involved youth.

3. Participants will be able to facilitate discussions with system involved youth about culture.
