Survivors of trauma and childhood adversity have social service, health, mental
health, and criminal and civil justice issues that bring them into all of our human service delivery systems. But these systems are not well-prepared to address the
implications of this new scientifically-grounded knowledge about the impact
of trauma and adversity.
This seminar will bring together Dr. Sandra Bloom, a psychiatrist with expertise in the development of trauma-informed systems; Carol Tracy, Esq., Executive
Director of the Women’s Law Project; and Robert Reed, Esq., Executive Assistant U.S. Attorney to, describe what it means to have a trauma-informed system.
CLE’s and CEU’s available to Judges, lawyers, law enforcement, educators, social workers, advocates and counselors.
