Held November 9, 2022, this webinar brought together a diverse panel of community violence intervention (CVI) practitioners to discuss trauma, how it impacts communities, and how it affects those who support victims of violence. CVI leaders spoke about successful trauma-informed approaches that use hospitals, credible messengers, and other partners to support crime victims and survivors. The webinar also examined how groups working in the CVI space can become trauma-informed organizations that employ policies to support staff resiliency and mitigate the effects of trauma exposure.

This is the third webinar in the Implementing Community Based Violence Intervention Strategies series, a 5-part webinar series which will deliver information on a wide range of issues important to successfully implementing CVI strategies.
