The “Trauma-Informed Practices for Working with Refugee/Immigrant Youth & Families” webinar is designed for attorneys working with refugee and immigrant youth and families. The webinar provides an overview of trauma and how it impacts marginalized (i.e., refugee, immigrant) youth and families. By adopting a “trauma lens,” attorneys working with refugee and immigrant youth will be better able to recognize signs of trauma as well as develop effective trauma-informed approaches to legal practices. Strategies for responding to youth’s distress and increasing engagement in mental health support among immigrant youth and families is addressed in the context of legal practice. Finally, the audience will recognize how trauma affects adults who work with students exposed to trauma and develop a self-care plan to manage the impact of stress.
