WEBINAR-The Intersection of Haircare and Self-Esteem for Black Foster Youth: Considering Historical, Contemporary, and Personal Trauma

Presented by the Child Abuse Training and Technical Assistance (CATTA) Center of the Center for Innovation and Resources, Inc. (CIR)

This trauma-informed webinar will discuss the significance of haircare for black youth in out-of-home placement, and will take into consideration the abuse and neglect foster children are exposed to both prior to entering systems of care, and upon entering a new home and family system. Because foster youth are susceptible to experiencing higher rates of depression and PTSD, the psychological impact of low self-esteem can be particularly detrimental and contribute to on-going personal trauma.

The goals of this training are to understand how and why haircare can impact the behaviors, emotions, and self-esteem of black foster youth and to learn trauma-informed methods for addressing this issue with foster youth, biological parents and relatives, caregivers, social workers, probation officers, and congregate care staff.
