This two-part training will focus on increasing the sensitivity and humility of providers, to promote the establishment of trauma-free, supportive care and service environments for communities who have been affected by transgenerational/historical trauma. There will be explorations of cultural competence, sensitivity and humility, as well as useful tools for engagement with clients in more open, respectful and empathetic ways. Recommendations for providing services, care and treatment will be offered.
