About the Event
Nicole Klasey, Psy.D., & Nola Brantley
Working with foster 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 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.
- Participants will be able to define generational trauma.
- Participants will be able to identify at least one reason a family member may not acknowledge a youth’s trauma
- Participants will be able to describe the unintended consequences when providers only serve the youth and not the family as a whole
