Event Details

 Buffering Intergenerational Trauma: Child Well-Being and Community-Based Resilience is scheduled for Tuesday, February 1, kicking off (virtually) at 10:00 a.m. PST.

We are thrilled to present developmental scientist Dr. Kandace Thomas as the featured speaker. Passionately committed to her work at the intersection of research, policy, and practice in the field of early childhood and infant mental health, her focus is squarely on racial and social justice. Dr. Thomas is nationally recognized for her innovative work in child development, diversity-informed practice, and mindfulness. She brings an array of strength and community-based research and practices to support children and families – and those who work with them.

We are delighted that Dr. Benjamin Danielson, uncommon community leader and pediatrician extraordinaire, will join our gathering once again. We look forward to Dr. Ben’s keen ability to help us examine this time we are collectively experiencing. Dr Ben will offer thoughts regarding a focus on community abundance rather than only deficits and scarcity. He’ll lead a panel from the community to share their insights and examples of community-centered practices that promote resilience. They include Shivon Brite from Empire Health FoundationKeoki Kauanoe from Family Education & Support Services, and Dr. Kristina Lovato from California State University.

Attendees will come away inspired and equipped with tools, practices, and strategies for facilitating healing and building resilience. We can’t wait to welcome you to this year’s gathering on February 1!
