SoC Best Practices Equity and Inclusion | Exploring Alternatives to Out of Home Placements

April 16 @ 9:00 am - 12:15 pm
Free

Currently our country has the largest adult and youth prison populations. The relationship between trauma and incarceration has a strong relationship, as most incarcerated youths and adults have experienced at least 1 trauma. Due to the work of prison abolitionists, more mental health workers are becoming aware of the harms associated with incarceration and particularly how it affects youths and their communities. In this training, providers will learn about the history of incarceration from slavery to our present day. We will discuss how the use of incarceration significantly increased during the 1990s and what communities are affected by incarceration. We will also discuss ways to help youth and their families that are involved in the incarceration system and discuss alternative ways to deal with dysregulating behaviors that do not lead to increased risks of trauma.
