Mark your calendars for the upcoming 2020 NW Children’s Foundation Forum: Community Trauma and Child Well-Being: A Deeper Dive into the Future of Healing.
Historical and intergenerational trauma is real and far reaching. The cumulative emotional wounding from generation to generation can contribute to many negative health outcomes for individuals including PTSD, depression and Type 2 diabetes – as well as impacting the community as a whole.
This year’s Forum will focus on the “how” of our work. How can we best understand and begin to address community trauma? What practical tools are available for those of us who work with children, youth and families to start the healing process?
