Trauma Informed Services and Treatments for Crossover Youth

Date: 
Wednesday, June 3, 2015
Time: 
9:00AM PT / 12:00PM ET
Location: 
Learning Center Webinar
Sponsoring Agency: 
National Center for Child Traumatic Stress
Description: 

Presenters:

Dr. Julian Ford -University of Connecticut Health Center Child Trauma Clinic

Dr. Patricia Kerig -Professor and Director of Clinical Training at the University of Utah

Crossover youth—those involved simultaneously or successively in both the child welfare and juvenile justice systems—represent a population with specific risks and unique needs for trauma-informed services. In this webinar, the presenters will discuss the processes leading maltreated youth to become dually involved in the juvenile justice system and will describe the characteristics of crossover youth with a particular focus on those living in urban settings, including the highly disproportionate representation of ethnic minority youth and girls. Theories and research regarding the underlying developmental processes and trajectories that link childhood maltreatment to adolescent involvement in the juvenile justice system also will be presented. A clinical framework for trauma-informed services and trauma-specific therapeutic and rehabilitative services will then be described, including models for intervening at the levels of systems and institutions, as well as evidence-based approaches for treating traumatized families and individual youths.

To register for this free online event, please visit the NCTSN Learning Center for Child and Adolescent Trauma. If you are new to the Learning Center, you must create an account (click on "Create new account" in the upper right corner), and you must enroll in the course Building Resiliency: Supporting Youth Affected by Trauma and Community Violence Speaker Series, under Continuing Education.
