Building Community Through Education and Family
To effectively work with youth and families from a trauma-informed lens we must understand trauma/generational trauma. Working with families can be challenging given the generational patterns of trauma, poverty, incarceration, etc. It is essential to understand generational trauma and how to work with families from a trauma informed perspective. Without this, we can have unrealistic expectations for families and encounter barriers to recovery. We provide family and community based education and training.
