A Health Affairs Press Conference -Trauma Informed Care is critical....

What was striking was the statement from one of the principal investigators -- " trauma informed care is critical '" And there it is again...at a National platform, at a...

Our Police, Ourselves [davisvanguard.org]

Alicia Doktor ·
Davis, CA Mayor (and ACN member), Robb Davis writes about attending a recent trauma-informed law enforcement forum. I participated in a fascinating forum about “trauma-informed law enforcement” and before it began I wondered whose trauma we would be discussing: victims of crime, police, or other community members? It turns out the conversation was about all three, and I left wondering if trauma-based analysis might, perhaps, point to a way out of the mutual fear, and the attendant hostility...

I believe that this is an incredibly important positive and holistic "reframe" that could even work in a medical system. We are all in this together as no one that I know is without trauma. It also provides a parallel process for providers, clients, and community members and allows for the spiritual and creative. Thank you, Shawn!!

I think we should change it to "registration optional" because most years had people who wanted to register even though they didn't want CEU's. They mailed in the registration form even though it said "no registration". When I told them they didn't need to, they always explained that they wanted to make sure they had a seat reserved. What do you think?
