Creating Safe Communities by Building Hope and Resilience

1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

Exposure to violence and other adverse childhood experiences generate trauma that can harm early brain development and result in serious health and mental health problems later in life. The good news is that communities can come together to help children and youth become more resilient and overcome these traumatic experiences. Following a brief overview of what we know about childhood trauma and resilience, this highly interactive session will allow participants to share ideas and learn from their peers through a series of concurrent, roundtable discussions. Topics for table-level discussions in this “world café” format will include: police-community trust; violence prevention; domestic violence; juvenile justice and jail reform; early childhood success; health equity; and social-emotional learning. Please come join us for these important conversations!
