Offered by: The Battered Women’s Justice Project
Date: Wednesday, November 19, 2014
Time: 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM (Mountain Time)
Presenter: Teresa Descilo, MSW, MCT is the Founder and Executive Director of the Trauma Resolution Center, formerly known as Victim Services Center.
Moderator: Graham Barnes, Battered Women’s Justice Project Resource Specialist.
Description: In most communities, effective trauma therapy is not accessible to many people as the mental health field is only now grasping the importance of resolving trauma. Trauma-specific services are still not widely available. FREE trauma resolution services are very scarce. Teresa will describe how the Trauma Resolution Center has developed affordable, culturally accessible services for domestic violence survivors, child immigrants, and other survivors of major traumatic incidents. Working within an interagency response, here is a step-by-step description of a model that other communities can adapt. Participants in this webinar can learn how to provide accessible evidence-based recovery for vulnerable community members who have not previously been well-served.
