Trauma Informed Family Engagement

Families in temporary housing may experience trauma due to sudden loss of housing, economic hardship, or adjusting to the conditions of shelter life. Family connections with schools can have a positive impact on student success. This webinar will explore the impact of trauma on safety and well-being and explore ways to affirm family experiences through trauma-sensitive practices.


Participants will:


  • Identify different types of trauma, including intergenerational and systemic trauma.

  • Understand the impact of trauma, as well as discrimination and racism, on students and families through the lens of equity and social determinants of health.

  • Explore strategies to support, engage and empower families with cultural humility, respect, and empathy.
