This webinar recording provides an overview of Trauma Affect Regulation: Guide for Education and Therapy (TARGET). TARGET is being offered in Illinois to youth between the ages of 10-17 who have been adopted through the intercountry or private domestic process and who reside in designated counties.

The webinar covers the eligibility criteria and the process for referring families.
