Moving beyond trauma-informed to trauma-responsive support for families

Children and parents in foster, adoptive, and kinship families have varied and complex trauma experiences. As a result, there has been a strong focus on becoming trauma-informed in our child welfare practices. However, to truly meet the complex needs of families, it’s important for agencies to move beyond trauma-informed. We must provide trauma-responsive support to children, their families, and caregivers.

In this AdoptUSKids webinar for child welfare professionals, presenters share strategies to make support services for families more trauma-responsive.

Audience: Child welfare workers, supervisors, program managers, and administrators
