Perspectives from the Field Talk Show

A Close-Up on Trauma-Informed Practice

Friday, February 22, 2019 | 9:30 to 10:45 am (Workshop 5)

How can we improve the chances of success for our most vulnerable children?

Join the conversation! At our interactive talk show hosted by Shawn Petty, our special guests and audience members will get together and explore trauma-informed practice, discussing challenges and strategies relating to overcoming adverse childhood experiences.

Drawing on their work across diverse communities and decades of experience in the field, these experts will illuminate how trauma-informed practice can positively impact children’s health, well-being and education. Through audience interaction and live polling, all participants will be energized and engaged – walking away better prepared and motivated to tackle the road ahead.

We’re reserving a seat just for you in the audience of this timely talk show.
