Last year PACEs Connection launched a worldwide book study initiative — Connecting Communities One Book at a Time — beginning with “What Happened to You? Conversations on Trauma, Resilience and Healing” by Bruce Perry, MD, PhD, and Oprah Winfrey.
We worked with our friends at the Children’s Trust Fund Alliance and Prevent Child Abuse Georgia, and held several events including a webinar with Dr. Perry. About 4000 of you registered for that event and about 1200 to attend. Over the course of the summer, we registered about 150 book studies across the U.S. (I’m checking to see if there were studies in other nations, and will amend this post if so.)
If you participated in those events, thank you!
Either way, we would love to know how many of you have read or used the book in your work in your PACEs science/resilience communities?
If you could just write a quick note here about it, or if you’d rather email me about it, our team would deeply appreciate the feedback!
Thank you in advance, and for all you do in your life and community to prevent and heal trauma, support healthier and more compassionate people, families, and communities!
