Working With Youth Impacted by the Child Welfare System

Wednesday, March 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Register for this one-hour webinar.

Many teens in foster care experience trauma unfathomable to most of us. Keeping abreast of the most up-to-date information around trauma-informed care is a meaningful way to provide services to this demographic. Just being a compassionate adult in a teen’s life can be a very important part of our work as librarians. Learning to lead with authenticity can help to bridge these relationships.

This webinar is the third in a series on Trauma-Informed Librarianship. You can find upcoming webinars on this topic under the Spotlight Speaker Series.

Objectives:

  • Learn about the unique needs of teens and young adults in foster care
  • Discover resources to support those caring for foster children
  • Find information and emerging research around trauma and substance exposure
  • Become an advocate for the foster children and teens in your libraries
