Is Your Website Trauma-Informed?

Facilitated by Melissa Eggleston, User Experience Specialist and Content Strategist

Organizations serving victims of trauma may have multiple touchpoints with clients, but one of the first may be the agency’s website. When people come to your website, are you helping them feel empowered to take the next step toward help? Or are you aggravating the symptoms of trauma itself?

Considering the overlapping principles of user experience (UX) and SAMHSA’s Six Key Principles of a Trauma-Informed Approach, NCCADV has examined what a trauma-informed website would look like. We will share what we’ve learned about building trust, ensuring safety, and much more.

Keeping in mind the neurological, social, and physiological effects of trauma and interpersonal violence, we will review what website features may be most user-friendly and what’s likely just frustrating. We’ll look at real world website examples, both positive and negative, from NCCADV and agencies throughout the country.

Webinar participants will gain practical suggestions and free tools to make effective changes to improve their websites immediately

Shared Risk and Protective Factors for Violence: Research and Practice

Domestic violence is linked to many other forms of violence and other health outcomes through shared risk and protective factors. Given the countless influences on violence, the tendency for multiple forms of violence to co-occur within individuals, families, and communities, and the limited resources available to address violence, focusing on these shared risk and protective factors can be a highly effective and engaging way to structure a violence prevention strategy.

In part 1 of this 2-part webinar series, NCCADV prevention staff will provide an overview of the exciting research on shared risk and protective factors for violence and an introduction to the new online tool, Prevent Violence NC, built to support communities and organizations working to end violence throughout North Carolina.

Part 2 of the series will feature examples of innovative violence prevention strategies addressing shared risk and protective factors across NC, with presentations by the organizations running them. Participants will be encouraged to ask the presenters questions about their programs and share examples of their own.

Self-Care and Secondary Trauma

Facilitated by Becca E. Edwards-Powell, MSW, LCSW 

Working as an advocate or treatment service provider to survivors of trauma often involves listening to survivors' accounts of violence. A major challenge for individuals and organizations providing trauma services is the cumulative effect of repeatedly bearing witness to the pain, terror, and loss of trauma survivors. This webinar will provide an overview of secondary/vicarious trauma including the signs and symptoms. In addition, potential interventions on the both the and individual and organizational level will be discussed and reviewed. This webinar is intended for advocates and anyone providing direct services to survivors, as well as their supervisors and people making policy decisions at these organizations.
