Trauma-Informed Strategies for Tribal Housing Practitioners

Hilton Garden Inn Rapid City  |  815 E Mall Drive  |  Rapid City, SD
October 24-25, 2023  |  9:00am – 4:30pm

Trauma is a universal experience for all people – much more so in Indigenous communities due to historical and generational trauma as the backdrop to additional traumas that continue to occur within the Native American and Alaska Native communities. This training is grounded in what trauma does to one’s brain and body and how childhood, historical, and generational trauma, have adverse health effects across a lifetime.

The training will include an overview of how trauma affects the brain and the body. The three Es of trauma (Event, Experience, and Effects) will be explored, and a deeper dive into historical and generational trauma with its multi-layers will be discussed. Vicarious trauma, along with vicarious resiliency, identity development, healing, and recovery will be touched on during the training.

Finally, time will be spent understanding what it means to become a trauma-informed organization and how to implement trauma-informed strategies for tribal housing practitioners and their organizations. Case studies will be utilized throughout the training to share real-life examples.


Participants will leave the training with a better understanding of:

  • Key principles, including trauma and the brain, adverse childhood experiences, vicarious trauma, vicarious resiliency, trauma-informed care, trauma informed design, healing and self-care.
  • How historical and generational trauma continue to play a role in the lives of Native Americans, including through the process of buying a home.
  • How to implement trauma-informed strategies in the workplace.
