Watch on YouTube: Webinar on Resiliency
A Brief Description
Nearly half of all children have experienced a traumatic event in their lives. These experiences have the potential of altering the ways children view the world and themselves, and these impacts can last well into adulthood. However, this is not the end of the story. Communities and supports can and do provide care that can shift outcomes and change lives. In this presentation, we will define trauma and its effects and learn resources and ways of being to build resilience and hope.
