|Through a highly interactive and engaging process, learn how you and your program can better reach survivors from underserved communities. Together, we will explore topics, such as:
-Who is being served by your program and who is not,
-Barriers to services and what you can do to remove them,
-Steps you can take to strengthen partnerships, build trust, and engage communities,
-Healing-informed, culturally responsive approaches to services, and
-Resiliency among survivors and advocates.
You will leave the training with an action plan to help you take what you learn and make practical changes in your work and program.
