Trauma: Impact and Evolving Research

  • 24 Oct 2018
  • 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM

Mahoning County Juvenile Court Community Advisory Board and Mahoning County Juvenile Court are pleased to announce that Trauma: Impact and Evolving Research will take place October 24, 2018 at Avion on the Water in Canfield, Ohio.  


Research exploring trauma and its effects on neurodevelopment and behavior has continued to advance and inform practices in human services. Early exposure has been linked to life-long developmental alterations that have the ability to not only impact the individual, but their families and communities for generations to come. Join us as we explore expanded and evolving research that builds on the Kaiser Permanente Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study and offer suggestions for prevention and remediation.


Dr. Roy Wade, Jr., Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania with a co-appointment in the Division of General Pediatrics at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, will present expanded research exploring the intersection of adverse childhood experiences and toxic stress with urban factors related to economic and racial disparities.  


Additional expert speakers include Meg Harris, Community Support and Trauma Supervisor at Alta Behavioral Healthcare, Angela Sausser, Executive Director of Public Children Services Association of Ohio, and Leslie Lieberman, Senior Director of Special Initiatives and Consulting at Health Federation of Philadelphia.


Continuing education credits will be offered. CPEs for social workers and counselors, CEs for psychologists and school psychologists, and CLEs for attorneys have been approved. Requests CEs for prevention and chemical dependency professionals and Teacher Contact Hours for educators have been submitted.
