Feb-March 2017

Webinar Series ” Realities of Shelter Life: Real Tools, Real Solutions” 

About These Series:

While shelter advocates are expected to build a trauma-informed community and help a very diverse group of survivors and their children, many have not received the necessary training to resolve the types and intensity of challenging circumstances that may arise within the shelter. These webinar series will equip shelter advocates to better identify, understand and respond to the many demands associated with communal living. We will discuss the reduction of shelter rules and how it may benefit your trauma-informed agency; we will provide real solutions to the common challenges of shelter living, such as curfew, kitchen, food, substance use, interpersonal relationships; and we will offer resolutions to conflict-the number one issue of communal living.

      “Creating Trauma-Informed Services and Organizations: Outreach, Assessment, Advocacy, and Service Delivery”
      Webinar Series July 2nd-July 30 @ 2pm EST/11 am PST

      About the Series:

      The concept of trauma-informed services and organizations has been a hot topic in domestic and sexual violence fields. This information is sometimes fragmented and confusing. What exactly is trauma-informed and what are its applications in “real life”? In short, there are five core components of a trauma-informed approach to domestic/sexual violence advocacy. These include (1) providing survivors with information about the traumatic effects of abuse; (2) adapting programs and services to meet survivors’ trauma- and mental health-related needs; (3) creating opportunities for survivors to discuss their responses to trauma; (4) offering resources and referrals to survivors; and (5) providing welcoming, safe, healthy, empowering environment for staff. These webinar series will not only provide the theoretical framework on trauma-informed systems, but provide real life, effective tools on how to become a trauma-informed organization.

      “Trauma Informed and Gender Responsive Care: Serving Women Survivors of Violence with Co-Occurring Disorders”

      About the Series:

      As understanding of trauma, and its prevalence in the lives of people coming through the doors of various social services agencies increased, organizations started seeking more effective ways to serve their clients. Research of the past 20 years definitively shows pervasive correlation between trauma and co-occurring disorders, such as mental health issues and addiction; and that female survivors have a vastly different experiences and responses to trauma than male survivors. As a result of these findings, trauma-informed and gender-responsive care movement was born. These webinar series will provide theoretical overview of linkages between violence, trauma, addiction, and mental health; offer an in-depth account of trauma -informed and gender responsive care; and supply practical guidance on how to increase your program’s trauma informed and gender responsive effectiveness and capacity to provide the most relevant and inclusive services to female survivors of interpersonal violence with co-occurring disorders.

      “Realities Of Shelter Life: Real Tools, Real Solutions”

      About the Series:

      While shelter advocates are expected to build a trauma-informed community and help a very diverse group of survivors and their children, many have not received the necessary training to resolve the types and intensity of challenging circumstances that may arise within the shelter. These webinar series will equip shelter advocates to better identify, understand and respond to the many demands associated with communal living. We will discuss the reduction of shelter rules and how it may benefit your trauma-informed agency; we will provide real solutions to the common challenges of shelter living, such as curfew, kitchen, food, substance use; we will offer resolutions to conflict-the number one issue of communal living; and discuss some creative holistic programming for survivors, especially summer outside activities, and learn some alternative healing modalities to prevent vicarious trauma in shelter advocates.
