About the Event

Nicole Klasey, Psy.D. & Nola Brantley

Training Description

Working with system involved youth can be challenging given the generational patterns of trauma, poverty, incarceration, etc. So, it’s essential for providers to understand generational trauma and how to work with system involved youth from a generational perspective. Without this perspective, we can have unrealistic expectations for youth and their families and encounter barriers to engagement. Providers will learn strategies to support youth with generational patterns of trauma within their families.

Learning Objectives

· Participants will learn to define generational trauma.

· Participants will learn at least one reason a family member may not acknowledge a system involved youth’s trauma.

· Participants will learn to describe the unintended consequences when support providers only serve the system involved youth and not the family as a whole.
