The Knowledge Hub connects 17 innovative trauma-and violence-informed health promotion projects funded through the Public Health Agency of Canada’s investment, “Supporting the health of victims of domestic violence and child abuse through community programs”.

These projects support people who have experienced intimate partner violence and/or child maltreatment through a variety of programs, such as parenting, physical activity (e.g. boxing, dance, sports, yoga), and culturally-based arts expression.

The Knowledge Hub facilitates knowledge mobilization among and for projects through webinars and a variety of other resources (reports, bulletins, videos).

Building resilience in children exposed to violence: broadening our understanding from a decolonizing and social justice perspective

The terms ‘resilience’ and ‘resistance’ continue to be ‘buzzwords,’ but what do they really mean? In this webinar, presenters will discuss how our current understanding of these terms, often at an individual level, fail to capture the roles of communities, systems, and movements in building resilience in children exposed to violence. They explore how resilience and resistance must come from a decolonizing and social justice lens and what this means for front-line service providers in their everyday work and policymakers at all levels.  


Recorded Event
