[Online] Trauma-Informed Hate Response: How to Offer Help to Those Who Have Been a Target of Hate

Date: 9:00am - 1:00pm PDT June 27 Location: Online


The occurrence of hate crimes and hate-related incidents are on the rise, and those with marginalized identities are most often the targets. Hate incidents can include experiences of micro-aggressions, bullying, threats of violence, aggression, discrimination, and acts of violence.

This online training is designed for those who work in education, nonprofit organizations, community agencies, or neighborhood organizations—as well as concerned citizens in the community.

Incorporating live lecture, interactive dialogues and breakout sessions, together we will address how to assess and respond to someone who has recently been the target of hate. Participants will receive an electronic training manual that has been developed for this training.

Participants in this training will learn:

  • The importance of a trauma-informed perspective that is integrated within a multicultural and social justice framework
  • Foundational skills to helping a person get connected with services and resources
  • How to take care of oneself in the process to prevent overwhelm, burnout, and vicarious traumatization

Please note: Registration for this class will close one week prior to start date.
