The goal of the Cultivating Youth Resilience Project is to develop new web-based, synchronous trauma-informed curriculum segregated into separate learning modules to enhance the handling of child abuse cases in a manner which minimizes additional harm to victims and their families. These modules will be based on understanding the physical, emotional, and psychological impact of child abuse on the child victim and their families, the predictive health and socioeconomic factors of adverse childhood experiences, tools and techniques for promoting resilience when abuse has been disclosed, and effectively managing child abuse cases in a manner which minimizes additional harm to the child and their family. Compassion fatigue and secondary trauma will also be addressed.
This curriculum development is unique in that it will be led by adult survivors of childhood abuse along with input from social service field experts.
Pilot training sessions will commence May 7th, with cohorts meeting in May and June. Each cohort is 4 consecutive weeks, meeting virtually on Fridays between 10 am and 12:30 pm EST. There is no cost to participate in the pilot training sessions.
