Webinar on Advancing Change to Support Trauma-Informed Initiatives and Build Evidence of Impacts [ASPE, US Depart. of HHS]

Overview of session: This webinar will offer an opportunity to learn about ASPE’s (The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation advises the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on policy development in health, disability, human services, data, and science) investment in bringing together federal, state, and program leaders and stakeholders, as well as researchers to examine trauma-informed approaches across sectors to assess what they look like in community settings, their impacts, and areas where further information is needed. Products from this study will soon be released that draw on important contributions of those leading this work, including an Issue Brief Advancing Change to Support Trauma-Informed Initiatives and Build Evidence of Impacts, and a Special Topics Paper: Using Logic Models Grounded in Theory of Change to Support Trauma-Informed Initiatives. Subject matter experts, researchers, and those closely tied to the work at a national level will share insights around the key themes:

  • Theme 1: Achieve a common understanding of what it means to be trauma-informed
  • Theme 2: Support a trauma-informed workforce
  • Theme 3: Strengthen measurement and build evidence of impact

 Audience: The target audience includes federal and state leads for projects with trauma as their main focus or one of their foci, or, decision makers and researchers who would benefit from acquiring additional knowledge about trauma-informed approaches and themes that emerged from the research, program scan, expert convening, and issues briefs emerging from this national project. Presenters/Remarks:
