Family involvement in the clinical treatment process for children and youth is a strong indicator of treatment success. Thus, understanding how to deliver culturally informed care can strengthen the relationships of service providers and the families you serve.

  • Describe trauma-informed care and its role in creating safe spaces for black girls and their families
  • Identify the significance of involving families of black girls in the treatment process and fostering an inclusive environment for parents of color
