We invite professionals who work with traumatized children, youth and families to join us for presentations and small group conversations discussing adaptability and health maintenance. Participants will learn to integrate practices that help diminish the negative impact of secondary traumatic stress. Presenters embody a wide range of professional experience with survivors of political violence and torture, generational and historical trauma, and vicarious trauma experienced by school professionals.
