2016 Webinar Series
NCDVTMH’s webinar series on Trauma-Informed Responses to Emotional Distress and Crisis is designed to support DV/SA advocates in partnering with survivors experiencing emotional distress, mental health crises, and/or psychiatric disabilities. The series provides an opportunity to explore existing frameworks for thinking about trauma and mental health and to examine our understandings of crisis and distress. It reminds us that we are talking about people and the complex courses of their lives, not about categories, labels, or diagnoses. Finally, it discusses the knowledge, skills, practices, and reflective processes needed to support people with a wide range of experiences of distress and ways of coping and being in the world.
Trauma-Informed Responses to Emotional Distress and Crisis: An Introduction
Presented by Jen Curley and Cathy Cave, National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health
This webinar engages participants in thinking through what helps when someone is experiencing emotional distress. It looks at the factors that shape how we respond to distress and crisis and discusses both individual and organizational strategies to respond to emotional distress in trauma-informed ways.
Responding to Mental Health Crisis: Incorporating Peer Support Practices
Presented by Cathy Cave, National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health
This webinar engages participants in considering community-based mental health peer support services as a resource to support people in our programs who are experiencing emotional distress. We will look at the alignment between domestic and sexual violence advocacy work and the principles and practices of peer support. We will also consider opportunities for cross-training, effective partnering and trauma-informed support for survivors.
