This webinar will include a discussion and concrete example of a trauma-informed network of care
, a group of interdisciplinary health, education, and human service professionals, community members, and organizations that support adults, children, and families by providing access to evidence-based “buffering” resources and supports that help to prevent, treat, and heal the harmful consequences of toxic stress.
Presenters will discuss:
- Definitions and guidance on key elements of a trauma-informed network of care to respond to ACEs and toxic stress.
- Strategies for establishing a robust and effective system for responding to ACE screenings and mitigating the toxic stress response with evidence-based "buffering" resources.
- Lessons learned from Fresno County on building a network of care.
- Shannon Thyne, MD - Director of Pediatrics, Los Angeles County Department of Health Services
- Artie Padilla - Senior Program Officer, Neighborhood Development, Central Valley Community Foundation
- Ivonne Der Torosian, MPA - Vice President, Community Health and Well-Being, Saint Agnes Medical Center
- Amy Parks, DSW, LCSW, CLEC - Coordinator of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, Community Pediatrics, Adolescent Medicine, & Child Advocacy; Director, Pediatric Healthy Steps, Department of Pediatrics, UCSF Fresno Medical Education Program
This webinar is part of a series of monthly educational webinars that offer practical information for primary care and behavioral health providers on understanding toxic stress and providing trauma-informed care.
The Office of the California Surgeon General and the California Department of Health Care Services are leading a first-in-the-nation statewide effort to screen children and adults for ACEs in primary care, and to treat the impacts of toxic stress with trauma-informed care. The ACEs Aware initiative is built on the consensus of scientific evidence demonstrating that early detection and evidence-based intervention improve outcomes. The bold goal of this initiative is to reduce ACEs and toxic stress by half in one generation, and to launch a national movement to ensure everyone is ACEs Aware.
