Trauma-Informed Education Class Starts
This webinar is hosted by PACE Connection
Even before, studies showed that a significant portion of the population have experienced trauma, or harmful or life-threatening events which have impacted their everyday functioning or well-being. Research shows that individuals living in poverty or with a disability are even more at risk for having experienced trauma in their lifetimes. Add in a global pandemic and a social justice movement unlike any we have seen in decades, and things really became strained. Tensions were already at an all-time high when the US Capitol was breached in January 2021, which further highlighted the divisions in our population, the erosion of trust in our government, and the difference in how Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color are treated by law enforcement.
