Complex Trauma and Youth Experiencing Homelessness or Foster Care

Length: Two hours

In this workshop, we discuss how complex trauma impacts the brain, body, and behavior of youth, with a particular focus on those experiencing homelessness or foster care. We also apply a cultural lens, examining interactions with historical, racial, and intergenerational trauma. By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to apply trauma-informed practices, including the Attachment-Regulation-Competency (ARC) Framework, when working with youth to promote positive interactions and healing after experiencing traumatic events.
