Professional Development: Webinar — “Reflections on the Status and Future of Trauma-Responsive Justice in Communities of Healing”
Every month, the Youth Justice Institute will bring to you the work of prominent researchers in the field of youth justice. Our “Lunch & Learn” sessions are designed to be interactive, informative, and thought-provoking.
WHAT: REFLECTIONS ON THE STATUS AND FUTURE OF TRAUMA-RESPONSIVE JUSTICE IN COMMUNITIES OF HEALING
We know some things about victimization, trauma, and adversity. Various fields have made immense progress over the last decade in introducing trauma-responsive concepts and practices into our human service systems. Even with these successes, however, work remains to be done. This session will review how our understanding of toxic stress has evolved over the last 150 years, where that science now stands, how that knowledge has been applied to reforming systems of care (including courts), and what the future might hold for trauma-responsive policy and practice in the coming decades.
WHEN: THURSDAY, OCTOBER 14th, 12pm — 1pm EST
Dr. Marsh will join us remotely on Thursday, October 14th from 12pm — 1pm. We will webcast it live and will make the recording available on our website at a later date. You will need to register here for the webinar if you plan on attending. We will be using Zoom — Here is the link to the Zoom session.
