“Trauma-Informed PA: A Plan to Make Pennsylvania a Trauma-Informed, Healing-Centered State” was released July 2020 by the Office of Advocacy and Reform. The plan presents a continuum starting with becoming trauma aware and moving toward being a healing-centered state. This presentation will utilize the continuum presented in the plan to address relationship strategies when working with youth, as well as strategies to move from compassion fatigue to compassion resilience to assist adults who are working with youth who have experienced trauma. Act 48 credits will be available.
