Hosted By: Red Wind Consulting, Inc
Date/Time: Wednesday, June 10, 2022 at 5:00AM ChST
Description: Domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, teen dating, and sex trafficking affect a disproportionate number of children and youth in native communities. This webinar will cover how children are affected by trauma, how their trauma symptoms differ, and what to expect while giving advocacy to children and youth. Each child's reaction to trauma will be unique, however nearly all children who have been through trauma may undergo emotional or behavioral changes for a period of time. When reactions become severe and persistent, they might constitute a problem. This webinar will look at trauma and how to give services and supports to help victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, teen dating, and sex trafficking cope with it.
