Register here to watch the recording

An estimated 70% of adults have experienced at least one traumatic event in their life. The impact of trauma is far reaching and can impact every area in life. Without an understanding of how clients’ perceptions, decisions, and emotions are formed by traumatic experiences, practitioners can unintentionally do more harm than good in their work.

This webinar will address the trauma faced by clients due to lack of resources, racial disparities in housing and poverty mindsets created by generational trauma. You will also gain clarity in your role and responsibilities when serving individuals with a history of trauma and understand the cultural and mindset shifts that are necessary to create a Trauma Informed Care organization.

You will learn:

  •         How trauma impacts wealth and mental health.
  •         Types and causes of trauma experienced by clients.
  •         How trauma impacts a person’s money mindset.
  •         Strategies to create systemic and organizational change to better serve client systems.
  •         The challenges faced by practitioners who work with trauma.

Redlining and Neighborhood Health

Before the pandemic devastated minority communities, banks and government officials starved them of capital.

Lower-income and minority neighborhoods that were intentionally cut off from lending and investment decades ago today suffer not only from reduced wealth and greater poverty, but from lower life expectancy and higher prevalence of chronic diseases that are risk factors for poor outcomes from COVID-19, a new study shows.

The new study, from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) with researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health and the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab, compared 1930’s maps of government-sanctioned lending discrimination zones with current census and public health data.
