Promoting the Avoidance of Risky Behaviors Using Trauma-Informed, Self-Regulation Strategies

This two-day training was held on November 15 and 16, 2022 with the goal of equipping SRAE grantees to better understand what circumstances adolescents are more prone to making risky decisions and why. Participants learned how the brain development shapes decisions adolescents make, and what factors may lead to healthy versus unhealthy risk-taking. Participants also explored the intersectional nature of trauma and the potential negative impact this can have on adolescent health.
