Looking Through the Invisible Borders: A Cross Cultural Response to Trauma Survivors

ID: 1328

This workshop's scope utilizes a cross cultural perspective in examining, exploring and identifying appropriate clinical strategies in trauma response. Sexual violence is endemic amongst all races, cultures and ethnicities nationally and internationally. Culture, context and identity are inherently woven within a trauma survivors experience as it is within a professional responding to the trauma survivor. Through this workshop we will attempt to understand the trauma experience cross culturally and the use of the professional's sense of self and identity in strategizing appropriate response. This workshop is offered in collaboration with NJ CASA. 5 NJ DVS credits: Intervention Skills
