Why Attend This Trauma-Informed Care Conference?

The documentary Paper Tigers sparked renewed interest in the effects of chronic, overwhelming stress and trauma on children’s development. Knowledge about ACEs continues to be shared throughout the country. Yet parents, educators, clinicians, mental health workers and law enforcement alike still struggle to implement this knowledge in a concrete and tangible way.  This year’s conference will provide concrete strategies for implementation, including a day-long Trauma-Informed Certification track, in both English and Spanish, and General conference sessions which include six sessions specifically focused on community implementation examples.


Community Resilience Initiative is officially launching a new series of blog posts written by Tara Mah, building to our 2019 Beyond Paper Tigers Conference on June 25th – 27th, 2019. We’ll cover a range of topics relevant to conference material, events, and inspirations.  Additional posts will be added to this list as they are published.
