Incorporating an Understanding of Insidious Trauma into Child Welfare Work

March 16, 2023


Event Trainers
Gwendolyn Downing, LPC; Amnoni Myers, MPA

Due to inclement weather, we have rescheduled this event. Please note the new day and time.

This webinar provides participants with an introductory understanding of insidious trauma (the daily incidents of marginalization, objectification, dehumanization, intimidation, etc. that are experienced by members of groups targeted by racism, heterosexism, ageism, ableism, sexism, and other forms of oppression, and groups impacted by poverty), and how it specifically applies to children, youth, and individuals involved in the child welfare system. Participants will learn possible actions, that can be taken by those working in and with child welfare, caregivers, and youth, in areas such as increasing awareness, responding in a trauma responsive manner, and promoting self-care.

After registering, you will receive a link to the Zoom meeting.

Handouts will be sent in advance. If possible, review them before attending, and have them available during attendance. This webinar will be recorded and posted later for those unable to attend.


Registration for this event is now closed.
