Healing in Color: Lifting the voices of boys and men of color (BMoC) to develop START, the Screening and Tool for Awareness and Relief of Trauma (Webinar)

Event Dates
Under an initiative to develop understanding and practical tools to address trauma and violence in the lives of young men of color, researchers from Youth ALIVE! and Drexel University conducted 4 focus groups with male gunshot wound survivors and then conducted 69 individual interviews.

Regarding these young men as experts in their own lives and their communities, we have summarized their wisdom and insights, and proposed approaches that will help systems that touch the lives of these young men to deliver more human and more effective care and intervention for trauma and its manifestations.

This webinar will summarize these findings by: exploring the persistent nature of the trauma that boys and men of color (BMoC) face, sharing how BMoC perceive their treatment and care, describing an intervention tool to screen for and address trauma.

The webinar will be led by John Rich, MD, MPH (Drexel University, Center for Nonviolence and Social Justice), Anne Marks, MPP (Youth ALIVE!) and Daniel Roman (Youth ALIVE!).
