Young adults experiencing intimate partner violence and trauma are often met with barriers to physical and emotional safety when seeking support. Providers often struggle to discuss, understand, and accommodate each survivor’s unique cultural, generational, and communal perspectives and needs. Structural oppression in many forms—including but limited to racism, sexism, ageism, transphobia, and marginalization due to spirituality—impacts welcoming and belonging. The disconnections between service, setting expectations and the variety of ways that survivors present has led to survivors exiting services. This webinar offers an accessible, culturally responsive, and trauma-informed (ACRTI) approach for understanding the impacts of trauma on young adults and creating healing-centered environments that are intentionally inclusive and supports that are consistently survivor-driven.
