Description

Co-Creating Well-Being (CCWB): Supporting Children and Families Through Trauma is a five-year, multi-part initiative pioneered by the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York (HFWCNY). This regional foundation’s goal is to support human service organizations to foster innovative solutions, through authentic partnership with service recipients and communities, that respond to and heal trauma and toxic stress experienced by young children and their families. A significant corpus of research suggests unaddressed trauma and toxic stress can negatively affect key life outcomes such as perinatal experiences, child development, school readiness, and psychosocial and physical health.

To increase the capacity of service providers across western and central New York, CCWB participants were provided with training and technical support on trauma-informed care (TIC) in the perinatal and early parenting period, human-centered design (HCD) strategies, and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) principles. A central component of the CCWB project was to evaluate its provision of capacity-building training and supportive HCD expertise, as well as the development and provision of trauma responsive programming.

The current presentation presents initial findings from a comprehensive qualitative exploration of the early effects of CCWB, including the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss key findings from a qualitative study focused on human service providers’ impressions of the early effects of the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York’s Co-Creating Well-Being (CCWB) initiative.
  2. Identify potential successes and challenges experienced by human service organizations when pivoting toward a more trauma-informed and human-centered programmatic approach.
  3. Describe the ways COVID-19 and nationwide demand for racial justice shaped the perspectives and work of CCWB participants.
