Accounting for Culture and Trauma in Your Services and Responses (Part 1)

Through this workshop, the role culture can play in an individual’s trauma and healing will be explored. Participants will examine the role that language, food, customs, status, spiritual beliefs and other cultural realities can play in an individual’s experience of violence and trauma. Participants will explore the intertwining nature of culture in resilience as well as violence. The presenters will identify strategies to engage culturally diverse communities in their responses and services and to develop more culturally responsive and trauma informed services.
