The National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare, in partnership with SAMHSA’s National Center on Trauma-Informed Care and Promoting Alternatives to Seclusion and Restraint Project, invites you to join us for the July 9 webinar, “Engaging Women in Trauma-Informed Peer Support.” The webinar will introduce and discuss a new guidebook on this topic from SAMHSA’s NCTIC.
Engaging Women in Trauma-Informed Peer Support: A Guidebook is a technical assistance document developed with the input of trauma survivors from across the country to help their peers understand trauma’s impact on women and to incorporate trauma-informed principles into peer support relationships. Using non-clinical and culturally congruent language, the guidebook explores how peer support relationships are affected when any party involved has experienced trauma.

The webinar will discuss the guidebook’s tips and resources for applying trauma-informed principles with a focus on healing, choice, safety, mutual empowerment, mentoring, and cultural congruence. Presenters will explain how the guidebook can be used as a resource for advocacy; individual, program, and organizational development; and trauma-informed systems change.
