This session provides an overview of how the batterer and their tactics create traumatic experiences, grief, and loss in children and teens' lives. You will explore trauma-informed approaches in communicating with children along with their parents. Highlights will include how a batterer's tactics toward the whole family impact the survivor's emotional and physical safety feelings. Helpers will better understand how a batterer deprives their child of empathy and consistency, sabotages the parenting role, and creates trauma and chronic stress experiences. Participants will learn trauma-informed approaches in allying with both youth and parent survivors. The resources and handouts shared will enhance your work with young people and their parents. ODVN Trainer: Sonia Ferencik, LISW-S, RA, Youth Advocacy & Trauma Informed Services
