Trauma-Informed Care for AAPI Survivors: 3-Part Webinar Series

Presented in collaboration with four AAPI community organizations and shelters, this webinar series explores the impacts of trauma on AAPI survivors and communities. Presenters share insight about working with survivors in shelter and through immigration and legal cases; and discuss best practices for providing culturally-specific, trauma-informed services, particularly within the context of COVID-19.

In collaboration with Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation
This report charts TMWF’s process of becoming a trauma-informed agency which included learning about types of trauma and trauma-informed care, assessing existing culturally-sensitive practices that enhanced trauma-informed care and identifying ones that need to be added, training staff, and working with researchers to document and build a body of evidence-based practice — all the while staying survivor-centered.
