'Prevention: Connections Matter' Podcast
Protective factors are vital to alleviating the negative effects of trauma and contributing to positive outcomes for children, families, and communities.
The Children's Bureau has released a new podcast, "Prevention: Connections Matter," which highlights a community-based effort to build understanding, trauma-informed communities. The "Connections Matter" podcast, which is based on a training developed by Prevent Child Abuse Iowa, utilizes evidence-based training that is tailored to specific community sectors, such as education, health care, workforce, and more. This podcast covers how the training was developed, the value of delivering it to the community, and the statewide needs assessment that helped shape the training.
The podcast and other related resources are available on the Children's Bureau website at https://www.acf.hhs.gov/cb/resource/child-welfare-podcast-prevention-connections.
