Prevention Institute Announces Feb. 17 Peer Learning Forum

The Prevention Institute will be hosting a peer learning forum on trauma-informed approaches during catastrophic events, including the COVID-19 pandemic. The learning forum will be held on February 17 from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm and will feature representatives from local governments, academia, and community-based organizations.

The objectives of the webinar include:

  • Describe key features of a trauma-informed system and its importance for preventing trauma and suicide during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Use the Adverse Community Experiences and Resilience Framework to think about community-level recovery and systems change that supports wellbeing in the long-term
  • Explore how agencies and organizations are integrating internal- and external-facing trauma-informed practices
  • Discuss opportunities to overcome challenges and apply this information in other communities

Additional information and registration for the peer learning forum are available here.
