October 20, 2017

5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Child Study Center at NYU Langone Medical Center
1 Park Avenue
New York, NY 10016

OVERVIEW

Youth involved in the justice system have high levels of trauma exposure and trauma symptoms, along with a range of mental health diagnoses. Post-traumatic symptoms can hinder healthy engagement with school, family, positive peer groups, and leisure activities. Treatment is important, but support must extend far beyond the psychotherapeutic relationship -- creation of a physically and emotionally safe environment is critical. Best practices include focus on communication and collaboration, staff skills development, trauma-sensitive organizational practices, and staff supports to minimize/mitigate vicarious trauma. This workshop will offer an introduction to the effects of trauma on justice-involved youth, implications for practitioners, and models for effective intervention.

Learning Objectives

Participants will: 
  • Gain an understanding of common impacts of trauma on justice-involved youth and common challenges faced by these youth
  • Learn to identify key aspects of trauma-informed care at individual, group, and milieu levels
  • Examine 3 evidence-based best practices in treatment and service planning for justice-involved youth
This conference will attract social workers and human services professionals who provide services to Veterans, Military Service Personnel and their larger support networks (e.g. spouses, children, and extended family).  It will increase the knowledge base on the intersection of specific Veteran and Military Service issues (e.g. substance abuse, PTSD, homelessness, families, housing, employment, education, advocacy, wellness, alternate paths to care, family violence).
