For individuals and families, high stress and multiple traumatic exposures across generations erode help seeking behavior and the belief in the possibility of improved conditions. This six-hour workshop will deepen participants’ understanding of the importance of a strengths-based, shared-power approach to engaging families affected by traumatic exposures and social marginalization connected to racism and poverty. Clinical examples will be drawn from FamilyLive, a caregiver-focused clinical intervention developed in response to the needs of families exposed to significant adversities. Interactive exercises will offer participants the chance to reflect and expand upon current practice strategies.
