Speaker Presentations to Download
This conference will bring together leaders and committed professionals of child serving organizations across the community who are interested in providing trauma informed best practices to Houston's children and families. Our goal is to build trauma informed collaborations across organizations such as school districts, the court system, agencies serving at risk youth and children in the child welfare system, and philanthropic organizations involved in supporting work with children.
This conference is intended for leaders and professionals at agencies working with children and will provide guidance and education on the effects of trauma and evidence-based practices for healing children.
