Historical Trauma, Sexual Violence and Sexual Assault Programs Relationships with Tribal Communities

Hosted by: Elena Giacci (Diné)

 

Historical trauma can simply be defined as the accumulation of emotional pain and suffering caused by a traumatic experience or event, experienced by an individual or by multiple generations. There is certainly nothing simple by understanding this definition at its surface, at least not to the level of impact inflicted to the given person or group of individuals. This webinar will be discussing historical trauma related to sexual violence and how it relates to American Indian/Alaska Native patients.
