With Open Arms:
Creating Trauma-Informed Services for Unaccompanied Migrant Children

This webinar will use a trauma-informed approach to provide you with an overview of the experiences of migrant children and help you explore different ways to serve this population. Learn about the experiences of refugee children who are in foster care, school systems and community-based programs. This webinar will provide participants with tools to examine your program’s readiness to appropriately respond to common traumatic experiences of this population that may carry over into life in the United States, including surviving war, abuse, family separation and child-trafficking.
