About the Event
Nola Kesia Brantley
Given the patterns of trauma including childhood sexual abuse that system involved youth experience it is crucial for those who serve and support system involved youth to have a comprehensive understanding of childhood sexual abuse and its impacts. Understanding the areas of a youth’s life that may be impacted by childhood sexual abuse is important to consider for services and support planning. Childhood sexual abuse survivors can be triggered as a result of the trauma they’ve suffered and understanding this is key to providing them with compassionate care.
