We Need to Talk About This: Disability and Trauma Prevention, Identification, and Treatment

October 25, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm EDT

The Arc of Northern Virginia welcomes you to this panel presentation and Q and A session focusing on the intersection of developmental disabilities and trauma, including ideas on how appropriate sexual education can prevent traumatic experiences.  People with disabilities are significantly more likely to be victims of crime than someone with out a disability, but there are many ways to become a “tough target” for abuse.  Our expert panel of social workers, therapists, yoga therapists, and social skills coaches will share information on how to prevent abuse and trauma, how to identify trauma, and how to recover from traumatic experiences.  The second half of the workshop will be an open question and answer session.

The workshop will be held live at The Arc of Northern Virginia on Thursday, October 25, 2018 from 11:30-1 PM and via simultaneous live webinar.  To learn more about the event and RSVP, please visit our workshops page.
