The JFNA Center on Aging and Trauma in collaboration with The International Rescue Committee’s New Jersey Office for Refugees invite you to participate in, How to Provide Person-Centered, Trauma-Informed Care to Older Refugees. Person-Centered, Trauma-Informed care is a holistic approach to service provision developed by The JFNA Center on Aging and Trauma that infuses knowledge about trauma into agency programs and procedures as a way to promote the well-being and empowerment of trauma survivors. During this webinar, experts will share critical emerging trends in aging and trauma and strategies in how to support older adults with a history of trauma, including older refugees.
