Responding to trauma in the context of domestic violence raises a number of issues for survivors and their communities underscoring the importance of approaches that are culture, DV- and trauma-informed. Research has shown that the impact of experiencing multiple forms of trauma and abuse throughout one’s lifetime is significantly higher among multiracial, African American, Latina, Asian and Pacific Islander and Native American/Alaska Native women. This webinar will feature speakers from national and culturally specific community based organizations who will discuss key considerations for implementing trauma-informed domestic violence services as they relate to the ethnic, racial, cultural, and lingual diversity of victims of domestic violence from underserved and historically marginalized communities. The webinar will highlight culturally specific trauma-informed approaches to both individual and collective trauma, violence, and abuse as well as a framework for thinking about trauma in the context of cumulative burden, ongoing risk and coercive control.
