Working within foster youth systems can involve multiple complex initiatives that together work towards establishing resiliency of youth and families, and sustainability for providers and those working within the system of care. Building Trauma informed systems requires ongoing training and development of providers who have newly entered the system of care and may be unaware of previous actions and steps taken to begin developing a trauma-informed system. This training sets a frame of how the modality of education and teaching can be used to bridge gaps in power dynamics to foster healing within foster-youth serving systems. Participants will engage in activities that help articulate the actions involved in building resilience, mindfulness and self-care.
