Webinar: Relationship Education: A Trauma-Informed Approach for Youth



November 11, 2020


Relationship Education:

A Trauma-Informed Approach for Youth

Join Dr. Kristen Plastino and Jennifer Todd from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio as they define trauma and discuss Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). They will explore trauma's effects on young people as well as youth’s reactions to trauma. You will learn how they shifted from the existing paradigm to a trauma-informed approach utilizing relationship education. They will share lessons they learned in the field as they implemented their approach with over 100,000 young people over the last 4 years in San Antonio.


At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe trauma.

  2. Name two causes of Adverse Childhood Experiences.

  3. List three either immediate or delayed reponses to the “Effects of Trauma.”

  4. List one lesson learned from the field.
