WEBINAR: Scenario Tools to Thrive in a Post-Pandemic Future
March 10 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
The multiple pandemics of public health, racism, and climate change have created tremendous disruption across all institutions. Chances are your organization innovated its approach in ways you might want to keep and it is likely the post-pandemic future will not look like the past.
Scenario tools can amplify diverse voices and help organizations and communities envision multiple futures in times of uncertainty. Scenario tools surface risks and opportunities to guide the adaptation of programs and operations. This session will teach practitioners the basics of scenario planning and provide a tool to guide responsive planning during times of rapid change.

Trauma-Informed Care in Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Programs
A brief from the Office of Planning, Research & Evaluation provides information and resources on trauma-informed care (TIC) for staff of adolescent pregnancy prevention (APP) programs. The brief describes how a history of trauma can impact youth’s well-being and presents principles of trauma-informed care that APP staff can incorporate into their programming to meet the needs of youth with trauma histories. The brief also provides a tool for staff to assess their use of such care and a list of resources and organizations for those seeking more information.

Second births are least often categorized as unintended, at 25%, with the highest share of births that are unintended occurring among third or later births, at 40%.
