Trauma to Prison Pipeline Training for Trainers

Trauma to Prison Pipeline Training for Trainers
10:00am to 4:00pm

Action Alliance
1118 W. Main St.
Richmond, VA 23220

The vast majority of youth referred from school to law enforcement and into the juvenile justice system are survivors of trauma. The justice system typically fails to address, and often deepens, trauma. Kate McCord of the Action Alliance will be joined by Valerie Slater, Esq., Executive Director of RISE for Youth to facilitate this 6-hour training that will cover the connections between toxic stress and behavior issues in school, how trauma connects with system-involved youth, how and why restorative justice differs from traditional discipline, and simple tips for responding to students in trauma-informed ways.

Participants will be given a brief “training in a box” to take back to deliver to your local schools and task forces to start conversations about simple steps that schools can take to significantly reduce the number of youth referred to law enforcement by responding to students in more trauma-informed ways.

Intended audience: Preventionists, youth advocates, teachers, community organizers working on disrupting trauma-to-prison pipeline, and anyone working within their local schools on building healthy relationships and improving school climate.

Lunch is provided.

Cost is $25 regardless of membership.
