A Trauma-Informed Learning Collaborative: Moving from Theory to Practice



The National HCH Council is currently coordinating a 3-year Learning Collaborative to assist programs in adopting a trauma-informed approach. This webinar will share updates on the first year of the collaborative, which engaged ten organizations serving people experiencing homelessness to develop an assessment tool to evaluate trauma-informed policies, practices, and procedures.

Presenters will describe the Learning Collaborative’s structure, processes, and outcomes. Two members of the collaborative will share their insights about elements of a trauma-informed organization and important areas to assess.
