What patients and families need to know
Building on the strengths of all youth, including those who are marginalized or have endured trauma
This Grand Rounds talk will summarize the three foundational frameworks that prepare us to develop children capable of thriving through good and difficult times—positive youth development, resilience, and trauma informed care. It will cover the proven effects of childhood trauma and adverse childhood experiences on the brain, body, and behavior throughout the lifetime. It will then introduce the essentials of delivering trauma-informed care and offer a few strategies to APPLY these principals in our work with children and youth. It will focus on the power of well boundaried human connection in healing as well as the imperative of restoring a sense of control back to people who have been traumatized.
