Understanding the Impacts of Intergenerational Trauma on System Involved Youth
Nola Kesia Brantley
Time & Location
Aug 08, 1:00 PM – 4:30 PM PDT
About the Event
Nola Kesia Brantley
Working with foster and juvenile justice 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 foster and juvenile justice 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 system involved youth with generational patterns of trauma within their families.
· Participants will be able to explain at least one way generational trauma can impacts system involved youth and families.
· Participants will be able to identify at least one reason a family member may not acknowledge a system involved youth’s trauma.
· Participants will be able to identify at least 2 unintended consequences when providers only serve the system involved youth and not the family as a whole.
