Pre-conference Gathering at the Farm– june 23 from 6pm to 8pm

Let’s explore how far we've come with trauma and resilience research over the past 20 years over a sunset gathering for wine and heavy appetizers at The Farm.

Meet your fellow conference attendees while getting connected and ready to learn. This intention-setting evening will bring us all together to discuss the principles of being trauma-informed and the landmark research that completely transformed public understanding about the connection between childhood development and trauma.


How does trauma present in children? What's the latest research telling us? This part of our day will focus on how to spot the signs and symptoms of trauma with children in your classroom.

Neurobiology Know-How!

We will use case study to practice classroom dialogue so that you can infuse fresh, impactful, connection-building, and empowering language into your interactions with children and families.

Compassion-Informed Care in Action!

If you’ve previously learned about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), superb! Get ready for ACES 201 – specifically designed around current research regarding ACEs with a specific focus on school-age children, family health, and specific populations such as children with medical needs (including ASD and ADHD) and children you serve from specific settings (such as foster care and LGBTQ+).

You're the most important ingredient - we will work in small groups and pairs to collaborate and hone these intervention skills. We will extend these concepts to bolster your own resilience, which will counteract burnout.
