Advocating for Children and Youth Experiencing Trauma: Red Wind Consulting

Virtual Google Meet

Tribal communities have statistically high rates of children and youth affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, teen dating and sex trafficking. This webinar will discuss how children experience trauma, how their trauma symptoms can look different, and what is typically expected when providing advocacy for children and youth. Each child’s reactions to trauma will be different, but almost all children who experience trauma will have emotional or behavioral changes for some time. Reactions can become problematic when they become severe and ongoing. This webinar will examine trauma and how to provide services and supports that lessen the trauma impact related to domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, teen dating and sex trafficking.

This can involve challenges to understanding the presence or absence of medical evidence, the impact of toxicology on the human body, as well as the effects of trauma and the range of individual responses to sexual violence. Experienced professionals can provide judges and juries with the necessary context to ensure that they are making informed decisions based on the evidence and prevent misconceptions from negatively impacting the outcome of a case. The presenter will summarize the law related to the introduction of expert testimony and highlight the importance of deciding if and when to introduce expert testimony in a case.
