WEBINAR: Led by Dr. Colleen Cicchetti, learn innovative, sustainable and evidence-based strategies that engage youth-serving organizations such as hospitals and clinics as well as schools and communities to address the impact of trauma and promote mental wellness.
The importance of building trauma-informed environments has gained national attention as awareness of the widespread prevalence and far-reaching impact of exposure to trauma has grown. The Center for Childhood Resilience (CCR) at Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital has been at the forefront of efforts to support schools in becoming trauma-informed, while researching the effectiveness of these efforts. This presentation will provide information on the theoretical framework, practical applications, and emerging empirical evidence for these models.
The ICTC is a voluntary collaboration of organizations that are committed to applying a trauma lens to their efforts on behalf of families and children in the state.
