Tuesday, May 14, 2019

Research on the wide ranging and long term effects of adverse childhood experience has challenged Tennesseans to begin the work to build resilience to address trauma and toxic stress it causes. Tennessee, through its Building Strong Brains work, seeks to link the research on resilience with practice of serving children.

The participants will join together to implement trauma-informed/responsive services through collaboration and understanding adverse childhood experiences. The event will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., May 24 at Cleveland State Community College, 3535 Adkisson Dr.
