Event Description

Becoming “trauma-informed” means recognizing the many types of trauma people experience and its impact on their lives. Equipped with this knowledge, communities are better prepared to respond with compassion, support, and understanding. 

Building a Trauma Informed Community Series explores adverse events that can lead to trauma, examines how individuals can develop resilience despite exposure to trauma, and introduces innovative programming for working with survivors.
