Given the amount of trauma system involved youth and families have experienced, it’s crucial for those who support them to understand common trauma responses and how they may manifest. Although fight, flight, and freeze are more commonly known, there is increasingly more acknowledgment of the fawn response. This training will provide an overview of these common responses, how they manifest and how to support system-involved youth who are experiencing them. Not only is it important for us to understand these trauma responses, but it’s equally as important to help system-involved youth understand how they show up in their lives and may even be impeding their functioning at home, at school, and in other settings.
