Building a Culture of Trauma-Informed Practices to Serve Families Receiving Tribal TANF
This webinar is hosted by Office of Family Assistance
Tribal TANF programs can adopt a variety of trauma-informed principles into their offices and interactions with participants, with the goal of supporting Native families while avoiding re-traumatization and stigma. This Office of Family Assistance webinar on July 28, 2022 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. ET will provide a historical overview of trauma and how it impacts Native families, including many individuals who come into Tribal TANF offices for services. Speakers will shed light into how cultural practices can be used and incorporated into services and will share their experiences in incorporating trauma-informed practices into their work with Native families and children. Attendees will also learn about resources they can use when considering adopting trauma-informed practices into their own offices and work. The webinar will end with a facilitated Q&A with all speakers.
