Pulling the Pieces Together: Rolling Trauma Informed Care Services into Rules Reduction
Facilitated by Dr Carla Gaff Clark
Dates and locations below.

The fourth session in the series is especially designed to help us assist our clients in a slightly different way. In this training, we will look at how the changes in rules and regulations or just agency modifications are fitting into Trauma Informed Care. It will focus on areas that may be a bit rough right now, or even seem chaotic, due to the recent changes. We will also look at working with challenges and challenging clients through the TIC model. We will spend time looking at several different models that are associated with the TIC movement such as the Sanctuary Model.

This training is free of charge unless the host agency charges an administrative fee to offset cost.

Housing Protections for Survivors of Domestic Violence in Rental Housing
Wednesday, January 14, 2015; 1 – 2:30 pm (Central Time)

Last year, President Obama signed the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 into law. The law continues many of the housing protections that had been provided by VAWA 2005 and further expands these safeguards in several crucial ways. For example, the protections extend to more federally subsidized housing programs, cover survivors of sexual assault, mandate emergency transfer plans, and require that housing providers notify applicants and tenants of their VAWA housing rights. The webinar will discuss these protections. The presentation will also provide an overview of the emerging issue of local nuisance ordinances being enforced against survivors, including the recent Norristown settlement. This discussion of nuisance ordinances will also feature an overview of fair housing protections for survivors. Finally, the webinar will address strategies for advocates in interactions with landlords who may not understand or respond to survivor needs. Attendees will be able to ask questions of the presenters.
