Virtual Gathering: Childhood Trauma and the Brain

All Upside Down Virtual Gatherings are scheduled on Eastern Time

All people are deeply impacted by connections made in childhood. Unfortunately, for many children, healthy connections are not the biggest influences in their life, but rather trauma, abuse, and neglect shape their view and interactions with the world.

Join us on September 17 when Casey Call, Assistant Director at the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development, leads us in exploring the impact of trauma on the brain, as well as strategies for promoting healing.

This virtual gathering will provide understanding to pastors, ministers, foster parents, and adoptive parents about the vulnerability of children from hard places while offering practical steps and resources for them to provide trauma-informed care in their churches, ministries, and homes.
