Program Description

Please join Texas Juvenile Justice Department for this two-day workshop that will prepare staff to effectively train the required topics identified in Senate Bill 1356

- Understanding the impact of traumatic exposure on brain development, child development, and the lifespan.
- Identifying the role of trauma in driving the emotional, cognitive, behavioral, and relational difficulties of juvenile justice involved youth.
- Contrasting perspectives and approaches that increase the secondary trauma youth experience and perspectives and approaches that promote recovery, rehabilitation, and resiliency.
- Developing pragmatic plans for providing trauma-informed interventions with youth and their families.
- Strategies for becoming leaders in influencing trauma-informed community responses.
- Increasing awareness of vicarious trauma and strategies for self- care and resiliency for juvenile justice professionals.
