By working as allies, Tribal Advocates and Tribal Housing Authorities can expand each other’s capacity, increase survivor options, fill tribal housing gaps, and improve long term outcomes. Each partner brings a certain skill set, knowledge base, and networking circle that can be beneficial for survivors who are participating in housing programs. This webinar will include guidance to start and sustain your housing partnerships, with some tips for staying on track. If you are already involved in Housing and Advocate Response Team (HART) work, then this webinar will also provide an opportunity for a HART check-in. You’ll be able to reflect on issues that may have come up, and consider potential action steps to work through those issues.
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.
