Storiez: Trauma Narratives with Urban Youth for Community Leaders

March 20 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


This training begins with an introduction to trauma (defining trauma, exploring trauma exposure and urban youth, and considering the consequences of trauma exposure). It then explores trauma treatment for youth (best practices, treatment modalities, common factors, and trauma narratives). Finally, the DIY Storiez intervention is presented using didactic material, video content, and participatory activities. Storiez is a nine-step framework to assist urban youth as they create, voice, and honor their life narratives. The DIY Storiez intervention is an adapted version of the full trauma narrative process. It supports trauma survivors in creating abbreviated trauma narratives with the support of teachers, program leaders, coaches, and other community supports.

Target Audience: Community partners, master’s level clinicians or clinicians in training who work in brief treatment settings.
