Trauma-informed care and practice offer a framework for practitioners that is grounded in understanding, recognizing, and responding to the impacts of all types of human trauma. Youth who have experienced or are experiencing trauma in their daily lives need physical, psychological, and emotional safety to rebuild their sense of self and become empowered citizens. The presentation features Sarah Bowie and Keith Harris with the Alternative Schools Network (ASN), and Project Director Michael Hannon of the ASN 21st CCLC program. This webinar shares the importance of trauma-informed practice to not only youth, but their families and the community at large.
