Webinar Series: Trauma-informed Care and Veterans

In the fall of 2014, the National Center on Family Homelessness at AIR presented a series of webinars that addressed the impact of trauma on veterans and highlighted trauma-informed care as an organization-wide approach to understanding and responding to trauma. Special focus was given to the experiences of women veterans and how to provide trauma-informed care to this population.

This training program included an introduction to trauma-informed care and why this approach is critical to serving veterans experiencing homelessness, strategies for integrating trauma-informed care, lessons from organizations currently adopting this approach, and unique considerations for serving women veterans. The series was based on findings from Trauma-Informed Care for Women Veterans Experiencing Homelessness, a multi-site demonstration project. Project goals included building the capacity of organizations to provide trauma-informed care and evaluating impact on organizational culture and practice in veteran service settings.
