The first webinar in this series provided an overview of what we know about the effects of adversity on child and adolescent brain development, with an eye toward why trauma-informed practices are so important and offered practical tools and strategies for programs to employ when working with youth who may be dealing with trauma. In this webinar, the second of the series, we will dive into the implications of this research for youth development practitioners at both the systems and program level. In this webinar, we will provide concrete examples of how programs are ensuring or can ensure that they are providing safe and supportive environments that are centered on healing.
Join us for a conversation with experts in the field who will provide practical tips and suggestions on how to create healing-centered environments in afterschool programs, ensure educational equity, and discuss the important role of youth development programs in addressing adverse childhood experiences.
