Pathways to Healing: Trauma Informed Strategies for Serving Those Impacted by Violence
Lisa Christian, LCSW and Emily DeCarlo, LCSW – 3 CEU’s
The country has experienced an increase in violence during the pandemic, including intimate partner violence, child abuse and gun violence. Gun violence alone increased by more than 30% in the United States according to a new study by the Penn State College of Medicine. Stress, domestic violence, lack of social interactions and greater access to firearms have likely contributed to the increase.
This training will provide participants with trauma-informed strategies to work with individuals impacted by violence. The training will cover topics including (but not limited to) the cycle of violence, the impact of trauma and social location, protective factors, trauma exposure response, social determinants of health, complex PTSD, and collaborative community responses to violence. There will also be themes around cultural sensitivity and humility and power and privilege discussed throughout the training. This training is designed to be interactive and will include case scenarios, videos, and discussion.
Storiez: Trauma Narratives with Urban Youth for Clinicians
Meagan Corrado, DSW, LCSW – 3 CEU’s
This training guides clinicians through the process of helping trauma survivors create, voice, and honor their narratives. It begins with an introduction to trauma (defining trauma, exploring trauma exposure and urban youth, and considering the consequences of trauma exposure). It explores trauma treatment for youth (best practices, treatment modalities, common factors, and trauma narratives). Finally, the Storiez intervention is presented using didactic material, video content, and participatory activities. Storiez is a 9-step framework to assist urban youth as they create, voice, and honor their life narratives using a variety of artistic formats and mediums.
