About the Event

Training Description

When system-involved youth experience trauma it can impact not only their emotional, relational and physical health but it can also impact their spiritual health. Youth may find themselves turning away from religion or turning towards it. Given that religion and spirituality are important aspects of many lives, it’s important for social service providers to learn how trauma impacts one’s relationship with God, spiritual practices, and engagement in their spiritual communities.

Learning Objective

1. Discuss the impact trauma can have on system-involved youths’ faith

2. Discuss the impact trauma can have on one’s engagement in their spiritual community

3. Identify at least 1 strategy to support system-involved youth whose faith is impacted by trauma
