Annual Meeting | Addressing Health Equity – Trauma Awareness & Resilience

Morning Session (Open to all)– After developing a shared value system, participants will engage in self-reflective practices to recognize their own responses to stress. Concepts of intersectionality, implicit bias, and equity will help participants understand how their work is impacted by their identity. Participants will come away with a greater understanding of equitable and trauma-informed approaches. 8:30am to 12pm 

 Lunch – 12pm to 12:45pm | Awards Ceremony – 12:45pm to 1:15pm  Lunch and Awards for members only

Afternoon Session (Members Only) –  Through activities and discussions, trauma, resilience, toxic stress, and neuroplasticity will be defined and characterized.  Addressing how clients are impacted by trauma at multiple levels will lead into identifying a client’s strength and resiliency. An overview of micro-aggressions and a health equity framework will increase understanding of trauma informed elements and an equitable advocacy approach. After delving into co-occurring cycles of violence and the re-traumatization of clients within systems, the facilitator will guide the audience in identifying the strengths and needs of their organizations and practices. The day will end with action planning and goal setting. 1:15pm to 4:00pm
