Description

Effects of Harmful Immigration Policies on Families and Children:

How to Respond to Trauma & Fear

Stories of family separation at the U.S. Border have not only created a national outcry but have also unsettled many immigrant families and children living in Santa Clara County who are experiencing fears of deportation, family separation, or exhibiting signs of trauma and isolation. The research on trauma is abundantly clear – “toxic stress” has a serious negative impact on the physical and behavioral health of individuals, particularly to the brain development of young children. This convening is targeted for professionals working with refugee and immigrant communities who are witnessing the signs of trauma and are interested in helping children and families cope with their fears.

The workshop will provide participants with:

1. An in-depth understanding of the signs and lasting impact of “toxic stress” on individuals;

2. Tools to effectively coach children and families exhibiting signs of trauma due to immigration concerns; and,

3. A tool kit of SCC resources and services available for individuals and families experiencing trauma and in need of vital services

Room capacity is limited to 150 people; therefore, please sign up early to ensure a space at the event.
