Trauma, grief and loss can seriously undermine an individual's ability to experience a sense of safety, effectively manage emotional reactions, cope with the multiple losses common in urban community settings, and effectively plan for and believe in the possibility of a hopeful future. Explore the ways in which trauma, grief and loss intersect, and learn how to implement useful strategies to assist children, youth and families in the effective management of trauma, grief and loss as part of their roadmap to healing. You gain a more complete understanding of the impact of adverse childhood experiences and examine a range of trauma-informed interventions to help cultivate resiliency-building practices in children, youth and families.

- Understand the intersection between trauma grief and loss as viewed through the lens of a socioecological model of trauma
