The first part of this webinar describes the contents and organization of CPIR’s Resource Collection on Trauma-Informed Care. with lots of examples given. The collection was developed and reviewed by a team of Parent Centers specifically for the Parent Center network to use in their work supporting and empowering parents and families of children with disabilities. 

The webinar also takes you on a live tour of CPIR’s Advocacy in Action: Guide to Local Special Education Parent Advisory Councils. The guide is an online road map to help bring stakeholders together, suggests strategies to help them engage in dialogue, and offers best practice tips and tools to help them work together to benefit the local community. The guide draws on the experience and practice of Parent Centers where local SEPACs have been in operation for decades.
