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 were closed captioned. For more information, please contact Angelica Medina via email by clicking this link or via phone at 312-726-7020 or 312-726-4110 (TTY).
