Understanding Trauma | Video
This 10-minute video is the first in a 3-part series for which the CPRC in northern Virginia, Formed Families Forward, has created several accompanying fact sheets and handouts. It’s just one of many videos you’ll find in the Trauma-Informed Care Resource Collection.

Improve Your Child’s Life and Future Using Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports
Videos in English and Spanish
