Trauma-Informed Family and Community Engagement

The current pandemic and social and political climate have affected the families and communities we serve in myriad ways – from widespread unemployment and food insecurity to violence and the deaths of loved ones. These types of traumatic experiences can have profound and lasting effects, especially for children.

In this webinar series, we’ll explore trauma and the protective factors that help build resilience and counteract the adverse effects of trauma. We’ll also see how communities, schools, organizations and individuals around the country are using a trauma-informed lens to guide their work.

We encourage registrants to watch this 15-minute TED talk and read this short summary of the ACEs study prior to the first webinar for background on the science behind trauma.
