2013 Webinar Series

Practical Strategies for Creating Trauma-Informed Services and Organizations


This webinar series builds on previous NCDVTMH webinars, which offered a framework for understanding trauma in the context of domestic violence and for responding to trauma in the lives of survivors and their children. This new series will focus on practical strategies and tools for creating accessible, culturally attuned, domestic violence- and trauma-informed services and organizations.

All live webinars will be closed captioned. We will send more detailed information about each webinar, including registration links, in the next several weeks.
