In this webinar, Christina Love, ANDVSA Senior Specialist, will share about the multiple layers of trauma many survivors experience, which can include sexual assault, domestic violence, homelessness, historical trauma, substance use, and more. In her own experience, she has learned that understanding how the trauma she survived led to substance use, was key in her liberation and recovery. As such, she will share how when we as providers better understand the multiple layers of trauma that people experience, it can help us better meet people where they are at, not just in the moment, but also in the larger context of their lives.
