The two-day Trauma Summit held September 5 & 6 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. includes training on trauma and trauma-informed care, and other discussions between community partners to address trauma.
Research shows that 67% of the population has experienced at least one Adverse Childhood Experience. These trauma-based adversities are predictive of a multitude of toxic physical, mental, and social outcomes throughout a person’s lifetime. As a society and as individuals, we need to be better informed and prepared to prevent and address the traumatic impact of childhood adversities.
