In this webinar, National Latin@ Network researchers will provide accessible language that service providers can use to describe the overlap between the trauma-informed and culturally specific aspects of their work. Presenters will first present principles developed using research the NLN gathered from culturally specific practitioners across the domestic violence field. Then, presenters will discuss findings from a national research project designed to evaluate culturally specific and trauma-informed aspects of service for Latina survivors.
Through this webinar, participants will:
- Build their knowledge in trauma-informed principles through a culturally specific lens.
- Build their knowledge in evaluating trauma informed and culturally specific work with Latinas.
- Learn about the results of a national study evaluating culturally specific and trauma informed practice with Latinas.
