Webinar and Blog Series: Immigration and Trauma


Recent changes in immigration policy are presenting new and intense challenges to infants, toddlers, preschoolers and their families, and the teachers and programs that work with them. Families and programs are experiencing increased trauma due to the immigration climate. With funding from the Irving Harris Foundation, the BUILD Initiative has organized a series of webinars and blogs in partnership with the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) for providers, state policy leaders, and advocates.

Please join the BUILD Initiative as we offer four webinars, from April through July 2019, that will provide important areas for consideration in the provision of trauma-informed care as it relates to immigration and US immigration policies. Topics will include immigration policy and trauma; the impacts of immigration trauma on the health and development of young children; using a trauma-informed approach in working with providers and families; and promising practices and strategies for policy and legislation. We invite you to attend these webinars and encourage you to share the invitation with others.

Please join us for the first webinar on April 24, 2019 at 2:00 PM ET. Register here. Already registered? Please forward this email and help us spread the word on this important issue.

We look forward to connecting with you on this very important work.
