You’re invited to participate in Building the Movement in Education and Health Care, the second of eight remarkable workshops featured in the series, “Building a National Movement to Prevent Trauma and Foster Resilience”. This half-day workshop will occur virtually on Friday January 21st from 1-5pm ET/10am-2pm PT. The half-day convening comprises two panel presentations made up of educators and doctors across the country with different areas of expertise. Experts will have time to present and engage in a roundtable discussion.

Both panels will describe successful programs in each sector, advise on how to access and discuss trauma-informed work with decision makers in each sector and with community stakeholders, and will direct participants to resources that support implementing policies and practices based on the science of prevention, trauma, and positive and adverse childhood experiences. There will also be opportunities for participants to share their stories of trauma and resilience to further reinforce the need for trauma-informed mindsets, systems and policies.

Sign up for the workshop series if you have not already done so for free, and if you have then you can join the workshops with the same link you received for the first one!

“Building a National Movement to Prevent Trauma and Foster Resilience” comprises a series of eight virtual workshops held every two weeks from January 7, 2022, through April 15, 2022. The half-day workshops are designed to provide information and tools for community coalitions to integrate trauma-informed, resilience-focused and healing-centered approaches into their local systems. These include child welfare, education, health care, justice and faith-based systems. Themes across all sectors include diversity, equity and inclusion; racial justice; community voice; a cross-sector approach; opportunities for youth; individual, families, and communities. The goal is to reduce individual, organizational and community exposure to trauma, particularly in underserved and marginalized populations. People with experience in relevant areas will lead each session for participants, which include community stakeholders, practitioners and administrators.

The series is presented by the Campaign for Trauma-Informed Policy and Practice, the National Prevention Science Coalition to Improve Lives, and PACEs Connection. It is co-sponsored by the National Youth Employment Coalition; the Center for Trauma Resilient Communities; the Institute on Violence, Abuse and Trauma; the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute; the Kellin Foundation; MARC, a program of the Health Federation of Philadelphia; Penn State College of Health and Human Development; Edna Bennett Pierce Prevention Research Center; the Center for Community Resilience; Child Trends; Zero to Three; Attachment & Trauma Network; and the International Transformational Resilience Coalition.
