8. Working with Trauma in Cross-Cultural and Immigration Contexts

No child exists in a vacuum. And the stress or trauma they experience doesn’t either. All of our individual behaviors, mindsets, and experiences are intertwined with our cultural contexts -- that is, the customs, language, geography, politics, and beliefs that shape our lived experiences. In this episode, you’ll hear from several guest experts who speak to the importance of recognizing cultural influences such as mental health stigmas, faith and spirituality, and country of origin when providing trauma-informed care.Learn more about our guest experts on this episode:Dr. Apryl AlexanderDr. Claudette AntuñaDr. Sandra RafmanDr. Viola Vaughan-EdenKaren ZilbersteinExplore resources mentioned in this episode:Brody, G., Yu, T., Chen, E., Miller, G., Kogan, S., & Beach, S.
