Biennial Trauma Conference
Topic: "Prevention and Treatment of Childhood Trauma: Integration of Family, Community and Organizational Approaches"
Children and families throughout the country are experiencing trauma at an alarming rate. Examples include exposure to violence, abuse, natural disasters, severe illness or injury and traumatic loss of loved ones. Knowledge and awareness regarding the impact of childhood trauma continues to increase due to efforts like the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN).
Consistent with the perspective of the NCTSN, this conference highlights the importance of collaborative efforts to prevent and treat trauma. It provides an opportunity for community members and professionals to engage in the common goal of improving the lives of children and families by strengthening partnerships, practices and programs to keep children safe and to address the negative consequences of trauma.
