The Family and Youth Services Bureau webinar "Understanding the Impact of Trauma in Developing Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs for Tribal Youth," held for FYSB grantees in January, is now available to the public online. The session was chaired by Gwendolyn Packard of the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center and Dr. Carole Warshaw of the National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health.

You'll find a video recording, transcript and slides designed to help youth service providers:

  • Define trauma, including historical trauma;
  • Provide an overview of the biological responses to stress and trauma;
  • Recognize how trauma (including from teen dating violence) presents itself in Tribal communities;
  • Understand the effects of trauma on individuals’ ability to absorb prevention messaging; and
  • Describe trauma-informed services and discuss how to create a trauma-informed environment.

The video recording and transcript include questions and commentary from the audience and helpful answers from presenters.
