SCG is proud to partner once again with Echo Parenting & Education for a funders-only lunch discussion on how trauma impacts young people of color and how we can support efforts to create resilience, specifically for system-involved youth and underserved communities.

Research has shown that almost all (97%) of those involved in the juvenile justice system have a history of adverse childhood experiences. The stressful or traumatic events may include abuse or neglect, witnessing domestic violence or growing up with family members who have substance use disorders. However, there is an increasing focus on the skills that people can develop to not only be resilient but also to thrive despite trauma histories.

The conversation will feature respected leaders in the field and will address the important role philanthropy can play in advancing discussions and healing communities:

  • Dr. Kenneth Hardy, internationally recognized clinician, author of Healing the Hidden Wounds of Racial Trauma and trainer for trauma-based family therapy
  • Dr. Monique Marrow, child clinical psychologist and training specialist for the Center on Trauma and Children. She is a national consultant for the juvenile justice system, training staff on trauma, adolescence and behavior through a cultural lens.


The lunch is part of Echo’s "Frontiers of Resilience" conference, which you are welcome to register for separately, but registration is not required to attend this lunch discussion.



Dr. Kenneth V. Hardy is an internationally recognized clinician, author, and Trainer. He is also the Director of the Eikenberg Institute for Relationships in New York City where he maintains a private practice specializing in working with traumatized and oppressed populations. Dr. Hardy is the former Director of the Center for Children, Families, and Trauma at the Ackerman Institute in New York City, and formerly served on the faculty at Syracuse University where he held numerous positions including Director of Clinical Training and Research, as well as Chairperson of the Department of Child and Family Studies.



Dr. Monique Marrow is a child clinical psychologist and serves as a training specialist for the Center on Trauma and Children. She has worked for several years in the field of juvenile justice as a clinician, administrator and national consultant. Dr. Marrow serves on National Child Traumatic Stress Network’s Steering Committee, Affiliate Advisory Board, Community Violence, Complex Trauma and Justice Consortium Committees. She is co-chair for the Juvenile Justice Treatment Sub-Committee and recently co-authored a training curriculum with members of this committee entitled Think Trauma: A Training for Staff in Juvenile Justice and Residential Settings.
