Despite the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the CCN Regional Trauma-Informed Care Network team has been busy developing a toolkit for educators and schools, implementing a pilot program, and organizing their 1st annual learning symposium which will be held at the end of October 2020.
The CCN RTIC team will be hosting their 1st Annual Partnering for a Resilient Community Learning Symposium on October 29, 2020. This full-day workshop will be focused on providing practical tools and interventions to help attendees reduce burnout, stress, and build resilience. The team’s goal is to provide a deeper understanding on how trauma-informed care can strengthen the care and service delivery throughout our communities.
Workshops to include: Art Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Screening of Resilience and Community Café Discussions, ACEs Screening in Clinical Settings, Yoga, and More! Space is limited due to social distancing guidelines mandated by New York State. In the event that NYS and local government guidelines are changed, this event may be cancelled or reschedule.

The needs of students, families, and staff with a history of adversity, already a subject of concern, may intensify as people experience stress and grief due to loss in the areas of employment, relationships, social support, and family stability. Now more than ever, professionals in education need effective tools for resilience building and trauma responsiveness.
With many competing priorities facing our communities and organizations, the CCN Regional Trauma-Informed Care team compiled reliable and accurate trauma-informed care tools and resilience resources.
With so many uncertainties, creating and adopting a trauma-sensitive environment that promotes optimal child development is a community priority. Challenges or stressful experiences facing our students and families, may greatly impact the physical, social, and emotional well-being of our developing youth, as well as the adults caring for them. This resource equips schools and staff with the tools for empathy, assessment of need, and connecting systems of support.
