Interrupting the Impact of Traumatic Stress Virtual Meetings, February and March 2021
In February and March of 2021, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Family Assistance (OFA), held a series of three virtual meetings with state Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) agencies and stakeholders. The series, Navigating New Pathways towards Building Thriving Communities, invited state TANF administrators and other staff to participate in cohorts by ACF Region (Regions I-IV, V-VIII, and IX and X). Each meeting focused on a specific topic related to supporting families through COVID-19 and beyond, and each took place three times (once for each cohort).
The Interrupting the Impact of Traumatic Stress virtual meetings focused on how programs can best identify and address trauma among staff. These meetings provided state TANF programs with tools to better understand the impact of trauma on staff, identify how it shows up at work, and learn actionable ideas for building buffer zones of partnership, safety, and support in the workplace.
