A single service program may be quite appropriate to address problems that are simple or somewhat complicated. Collective impact, however, is an approach to solving complex social problems. Taking a collective impact approach requires moving away from the traditional, isolated ways that service organizations attempt to solve problems. Further, the integration of trauma-Informed practices further transforms the overall health in our communities as a preventative measure. This webinar will provide an overall look at how collective impact can be used to transform primary prevention programs by using a trauma informed resilience oriented lens. The theory of collective impact and trauma informed approaches may look different in application. Dr. Boone will share the theoretical components of how to operationalize collective impact and share how that looked for prevention efforts in Durham, North Carolina.
