Transforming Prince George’s County through Trauma-informed Care introduces action for community wide intervention that ensures responsiveness to trauma and its impact on the children and families of Prince George’s County. Paths for Families, formerly known as Adoptions Together and FamilyWorks Together, has a successful history of trauma-informed training projects of this scale, including past partnerships with Prince George’s County and a deep connection to the child welfare system since Adoptions Together was founded in 1990.
The year-long initiative will offer a series of conversations, trainings, and coaching that will enhance the understanding of the holistic impact of primary and secondary traumatic experiences for clients, professionals, and the systems in which their organizations operate.
Up to 1600 professionals from up to 11 organizations or groups will receive training to implement systemic change throughout Prince George’s County.
Training cohorts will consist of professionals from various youth serving community-based agencies in Prince George’s County who are committed to becoming more trauma-informed, trauma-responsive, and resilience building in their practice. Current partners include staff and resource parents from the Prince George’s County Department of Social Services, members of the Prince George’s County Homeless Service Partnership, and the Local Behavioral Health Authority.
Paths for Families is currently looking to partner with additional child and family serving agencies in Prince George’s County who might be interested in participating.
