Clare Reidy ·
BRISTOL, Va. — Local police regularly encounter children affected by trauma — especially due to the nation’s ongoing opioid crisis — so three U.S. senators have introduced a bill that would open communication between law enforcement and schools. On Wednesday, U.S. Senators Tim Kaine, D-Virginia, Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia, and Shelley Moore Capito, R-West Virginia, introduced the Handle with Care Act. It would connect children who experience traumatic events, including domestic violence,...

Re: Child Care Bridge Program with Trauma-Informed Training

Former Member ·
What encouraging news to know that our legislators are considering the role of trauma in the lives of foster children and supporting caregivers. ACEs science advocates can make a big difference by weighing in on the bill and its implementation (if passed) to ensure there is meaningful training and support around trauma. Too often, implementing organizations can claim to be "trauma informed" or provide "trauma informed training", but we need to make sure the training and supports around...

Hi Suzanne, Shannon, and Leslie - We're researching potential curricula to use specifically with Family Child Care Providers, here in California. Would Roots of Resilience and other references be tailored meet their needs as well? Also, do you know whether any of these qualify for IV-E federal funding/reimbursement? Thank you, in advance

ISO Trauma-Informed Child Care Programs

Suzanne O'Connor ·
Greetings! I was wondering if anyone is aware of a child care program that would consider themselves "Trauma-Informed" - implementing trauma-informed practices throughout their program. I'd like to reach out to them for an interview, with the potential of being featured in an upcoming publication. Thank you! Suzanne,

I would be delighted to discuss my trauma-informed trainings. I provide accredited trainings to early childhood teachers and family child care providers. So many of these professionals emerge from adverse childhood experiences! My work with them focuses on improving their emotional self-management through the "rebuilding of their mindsets and restructuring their brain patterns". I do this through teaching and training them in The 7 Mindsets demonstrated by those who have overcome life's...

Opioid-Dependent Newborns Get New Treatment: Mom Instead of Morphine [chcf.org]

By Dana G. Smith, California Health Care Foundation, August 1, 2019 When babies are born dependent on opioids, typically they are whisked away from their mothers, put into the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), dosed with morphine to get them through withdrawal, and gradually weaned off the drug—a process that can take weeks. Research now suggests that this long-established standard of care may be the worst way to care for a newborn with opioid dependency, or neonatal abstinence syndrome...

Re: The Relentless School Nurse: Sesame Street in Communities & the Circle of Care

Thank you, Robin - always the champion! This is so timely, especially with all that has happened to undermine children's sense of safety.
