Understanding the Impact of Childhood Trauma on Health and Well-being Across the Lifespan.

The Building Resiliency by Understanding the Impact of Childhood Trauma on Health and Well-being Across the Lifespan discussion format will focus on how clinicians outside of the behavioral health world can be part of the healing response to victims of domestic violence, sexual violence and human trafficking. Sharing the healthcare perspective and its challenges when working with victims of violence and abuse with professionals whose careers are directed specifically in working with victims can inform and enhance our response toward ending and thereby preventing intergenerational violence.
