Recognizing Trauma: Beyond Stigma, Toward Understanding
Why does it matter, what does it have to do with me, and how does it affect our community?
Childhood, historical and recurring trauma affects all of us and how we journey through the world. Facing trauma without a support system can alter our brain development and health outcomes and create lifelong instability.

Join the Catholic Charities Advocacy Team to learn from a panel of experts how childhood, historical and current trauma can alter those who are dealing with it, our society and the role the community plays in supporting one another.

The event will begin with networking and appetizers at 5:30 PM with the program starting at 6:00 PM.
