WEBINAR: Relationship Education: A Trauma-Informed Approach for Youth

November 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join Dr. Kristen Plastino and Jennifer Todd from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio as they define trauma and discuss Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). They will explore trauma’s effects on young people as well as youth’s reactions to trauma. You will learn how they shifted from the existing paradigm to a trauma-informed approach utilizing relationship education. They will share lessons they learned in the field as they implemented their approach with over 100,000 young people over the last 4 years in San Antonio.

At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe trauma.
  2. Name two causes of Adverse Childhood Experiences.
  3. List three either immediate or delayed responses to the “Effects of Trauma.”
  4. List one lesson learned from the field.

WEBINAR: Ongoing Funding for Relationship Education: Creative Sustainability Planning

Despite your best efforts, you’ve just learned that your federal grant proposal was not funded or your grant non-continued. Bummer. We’ve been there too. After an appropriate amount of time to grieve, time to roll up your sleeves and get back to it! The youth you serve need relationship education. But how? Join Kay Reed and Aaron Larson in this webinar just for Dibble clients to explore alternative funding possibilities.


Webinar attendees will learn:

  1. What grants the feds have forecast for the remainder of 2020 and early 2021.
  2. Outcomes of relationship education that justify the intervention with a variety of funding streams.
  3. Alternative, ongoing local, state, and federal flow-through funding.
