Investing in Community Resilience Series | Webinar II: What Is Trauma-Informed Practice?

Presented in partnership with the Scattergood Foundation

The spread of COVID-19 has created a myriad of challenges for communities around the globe. The science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), trauma, toxic stress as well as healing and resilience, can provide helpful tools for supporting communities through this time of crisis.

We invite you to join us for the second webinar in our Investing in Community Resilience series. This webinar will explore trauma-informed principles and frameworks and what they mean for practice at the organizational, community, and systems level.

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe why trauma-informed practice is a critical element of effectiveness
  • Identify core elements of trauma-informed practice
  • Plan strategies for applying a trauma-informed lens

Presented by:

About this Learning Series
Investing In Community Resilience: Deploying Trauma-Informed Practice for Funders & Capacity Builders

In partnership with the Scattergood Foundation, the eXtension Foundation is providing an exclusive 10-month learning series opportunity focused on how Philanthropists can use ACEs and trauma science to improve community outcomes. Funders are in a unique position to both implement internal practices that are trauma-informed and fund organizations and collaborative efforts that are practicing trauma-informed care. If you are funding direct service providers, this series will help you learn more about how you can effectively review, evaluate, and measure the impact of these providers. If you are funding vulnerable groups that are more subject to ACEs and generational trauma, learn more about how your grant-making practices can either contribute to resilience or cause further trauma.

This series will guide the conversation around how communities can deploy resources in creative ways to build knowledge and capacity throughout the human-serving field. The series will be delivered in three parts, each of which will include two educational webinars and one interactive learning circle.
