Trauma as a Cause and Effect of Residential Instability
Start Date: 11/16/2018Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Date: 11/16/2018End Time: 11:00 AM
Event Description:

Homelessness is often associated with poverty, unemployment, lack of governmental or personal support, and other economic challenges. However, this mindset fails to account for what research has shown to be one of the main predictors of long-term residential instability:  severity of trauma experienced by individuals and families.  Because these families are likely come into contact with the legal system, social services, and medical clinics, it is important for professionals to understand how to address trauma as a root cause of long-term housing instability, and to recognize how this instability relates to other challenges such as unemployment, domestic violence, involvement in the criminal justice system, physical and mental health diagnoses.  How should social workers, advocates, physicians, and attorneys go about doing this, and how can multi-disciplinary professionals collaborate? This panel will highlight programs doing just that, and offer guidance to professionals on how to provide strength-based services to families and individuals, across systems and regardless of profession or role.
