Biennial Trauma Conference
***Save the Date*** October 3-4 2013
4th Biennial Trauma Conference:
"Addressing Trauma across the Lifespan: Integration of Family, Community, and Organizational Approaches”
Emotional trauma negatively impacts individuals and their families across the lifespan and can occur in any environment and ensnare single or multiple victims. Examples include exposure to violence, abuse, natural disasters, severe illness or injury, and traumatic loss of loved ones. Utilizing a trauma-informed service delivery approach that strengthens practices, programs and partnerships is vital in addressing the negative consequences of trauma.
The 4th Biennial Trauma conference sponsored by the Family Center at Kennedy Krieger Institute provides an opportunity for those who provide services to trauma survivors to expand their knowledge base and learn new strategies for addressing this important public health issue. Based on the latest research and current trends, workshops will offer practical tools, information, and resources on contemporary trauma topics geared towards a broad audience.
