11 AM to 12:30 PM Pacific Time
(2 PM to 3:30 PM Eastern)

There is growing awareness of trauma and its impact on individuals and communities. Currently, most initiatives working to address trauma focus on approaches that treat an individual. Join us for a web conference exploring a new topic in the field:  tailoring prevention work for communities that have been impacted by trauma. Be prepared to share your thoughts as we discuss how we currently understand and analyze community trauma, its transmission, and approaches to preventing sexual and domestic violence in communities impacted by trauma.  Register directly to the right.

I tried to listen to the recording but the sound kept cutting in and out until it finally stopped all together.

When viewing the recordings, it often helps to allow the recording to fully download to your computer before viewing it. Depending on the speed of your internet connection, that could take 5 to 10 minutes.
