Early childhood educators learn new ways to spot trauma triggers, build resilience in preschoolers

A hug may be comforting to many children, but for a child who has experienced trauma it may not feel safe. That’s an example used by Julie Kurtz, co-director of trauma informed practices in early childhood education at the WestEd Center for Child & Family Studies (CCFS), as she begins a trauma training session. Her audience, preschool teachers and staff of the San Francisco-based Wu Yee Children’s Services at San Francisco’s Women’s Building, listen attentively.

Showing UP for Sophia: Dear John,

Marcella Maggio ·
Dear John, Watching Marriage Story on New Year’s Eve was the ending I needed to witness in order to understand our own. Like Charlie and Nicole, we have history, we share a child, and we both want our child to be raised in an environment where she can thrive. While our similarities don’t stop there, the difference in how their ending started inspired me to follow suit. A mediator encouraged them to write a note of positivity to remember why they got married (together) in the first place.

Anndee Hochman ·
Perhaps it wasn’t the optimum time to update the network’s vision and values statements: a virtual meeting held in the midst of a global pandemic. But a record number of people—51, compared to the typical 30—tuned in for the May 1 Wisconsin Office of Children’s Mental Health (OCMH) Collective Impact Council, and they gave the new values statement, which highlights inclusivity and collaboration, an enthusiastic thumbs-up. At the virtual table were members from key state departments—Children...

Re: Darkness to Light Stewards of Children Training in SD

Alicia St. Andrews ·
Wish I could attend! Back in 2010 I co-authored the San Francisco Adolescent Health Working Group Sexual Health Toolkit Module . Now as a parent of young child, I have found the D arkness to Light resources to be just what I needed for this age and stage, for my own parenting and to share with other parents seeking info on the subject. Thank you for your stellar work!

AUGGH!! I've been hoping/ wanting to see this, ever since I missed the first showing (out of town)--- and now, it conflicts with tomorrow's crucial meeting at church!! Any chance there will be an additional screening coming up? And/or, will it be available in any other way soon (e.g., online??) Thanks! Blessings, Linda K.

Re: Paper Tigers free screening

Pam Hansen ·
I understand, Linda - I can't attend either! I do know that the Paper Tigers website has listings for showings around the country and/or there is the option of "renting" the DVD for your own viewing (kind of expensive for just one person - I think its around $200). Hopefully others who do local screenings will post it on ACEs Connection and you'll be able to attend:-)
