Webinar Feb. 26, 2015 – “Family Violence Prevention – Building Trauma Informed Communities”

CHNET-Works will be hosting a webinar on February 26, 2015 from noon- 1:30pm titled “Family Violence Prevention – Building Trauma Informed Communities.”  Trauma-informed practice addresses the impact of violence and victimization on the individual, family, and community’s life and development. It emphasizes choice, control, knowledge, survival skills, ethical integrity, and support on the person’s own terms. Trauma-informed practice is critical for supporting a systems-response to individual, family and com-munity histories of violence and trauma (for example, aboriginal experience of residential schooling in Canada).
