Youth-CAN Training on Stopping Community Violence

  • University Settlement's Houston Street Center 273 Bowery New York, NY, 10002 United States (map)

My Post-Doc, Whitney Rog, and I will again deliver a training on trauma and community violence for community members and providers alike for the NYC Citywide Oversight Committee. I think the public is welcome to attend but i may have to ask for permission. 

Description of YOUTH-CAN

YOUTH-CAN begins with a three-hour workshop to learn about the effects of trauma and community violence on children and families. Participants will also learn best practices for violence prevention and trauma intervention, formulate plans for how they personally can address trauma and violence in their communities, and then work together for the next three months to complete those plans. The trainers will provide optional monthly consultation calls to help support participants in completing their action plans. Finally, participants will informally report back their successes and challenges in accomplishing their plans.
