Re: April 5 conference program

I'd like to wrap up the day by doing a 10-minute overview of what other communities across the U.S. are doing, and then issue a challenge to the conference participants to make Yolo County the first trauma-informed county in California. What do you think?

I really like your idea of the wrap up Jane. Only wonder if ten minutes will be enough?

Re: April 5 conference program

Maybe we use the 4:30-5 pm for my short presentation, and then ask for ideas from the participants, set the next meetup date....maybe that one will be more formal???? What do y'all think?

I added Cherie Schroeder's layout to the end. Don't worry about the text in there...it's the original. Just OK the layout. And once we get the text set, then Cherie, will you copy and paste and send a version to Gail, so that she can print it out for her meeting on Wednesday? I can send a version to Shaunda for the Feb 4-5 workshops. -- J.

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?

Something very important: we are required to put the IVAT logo on all marketing materials. I put it on my version of the flyer, in the bottom corner, and changed the bottom line to "Co-sponsors include Yolo County CASA and IVAT" followed by the logo.

Resource: What is epigenetics?

Bonnie Berman ·
How does epigenetics relate to child development? New resource from the Harvard Center on the Developing Child explains. Science tells us that the interactions between genes and environment shape human development. “Epigenetics” is an emerging area of scientific research that shows how environmental influences—including the experiences we provide for children—actually affect the expression of their genes. This means that the old idea that genes are "set in stone" has been disproven. Nature...

The Economics of Child Abuse: A Study of California

While the impact of maltreatment on a child and their family is devastating, child maltreatment also has serious effects far beyond those for the victim. Maltreatment results in ongoing costs to taxpayers, institutions, businesses, and society at large. Local communities bear the brunt of these costs in the form of medical, educational, and judicial costs, though more tragic signs are seen in homelessness, addiction, and teen pregnancy. To create a concrete understanding of the widespread...
