Primary prevention in the context of a traumatized community
Tuesday, July 9, 2013
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.

- the need for understanding the impact of community-level trauma and the implications for prevention practice
