FRONTIER (frontier.fpg.unc.edu) in the FPG Child Development Institute, UNC-Chapel Hill brings to you this statewide Summit, Leveraging North Carolina’s Assets to Prevent Child Trauma.
Momentum is growing in NC for building trauma-informed systems that strengthen resilience and weed out systemic and often intergenerational sources of child trauma. To advance this work, it is critical that community-research-policy partnerships are forged to promote the widespread adoption of science-based strategies and encourage a transformational shift from a reactive to a preventative approach.
This inaugural Statewide Trauma Summit will stimulate dialogue between community stakeholders and members, researchers, practitioners and clinicians, and legislators and agency officials to advance these objectives and inform a strategic plan for NC to implement best practices within well-oiled delivery systems focused on preventing child trauma.
Installing multilevel solution-based strategies into mindsets, practices, and policies is essential to the health, development, and wellbeing of NC's most important asset – our children.
The summit begins with a virtual dialogue between community representatives, clinicians, researchers and agency officials to set the stage, defining trauma from their perspective and discussing their approach to its prevention. The in-person and virtual summit event takes place at NC State University, Raleigh NC.
