SCG is proud to partner on a funders-only lunch discussion on March 16 with Echo Parenting & Education during their Changing the Paradigm Conference. Please join us for a conversation on building trauma-informed schools and communities and the important role schools can play in recognizing and responding to youth who have been exposed to traumatic stress.

Traumatic experiences can impact a child’s ability to regulate emotions, participate in classroom activities, and achieve normal developmental milestones. This early exposure to violence, abuse, neglect, or loss can impact the long term well-being of individuals, families and communities.

This funder luncheon will feature respected leaders in the field of childhood trauma and will address the important role philanthropy can play:

  • Dr. Robert Ross, President and CEO, The California Endowment (@calendow)
  • Dr. Ross Greene, Founding Director of Center for Collaborative Problem Solving and author of The Explosive Child and Lost at School (@DrRossGreene)
  • Dr. Susan Craig, Author, Reaching and Teaching Children Who Hurt and Trauma Sensitive Schools
  • Jennifer Pippard, Director of Community Investments, First 5 LA (@JenniferPippard, @First5LA)

Organizations around the country—including many of those who will be in attendance at Echo’s Conference—are driving efforts to incorporate this knowledge into service delivery systems. There is a growing consensus among service providers within those systems that addressing trauma requires a multi-pronged public health strategy.

We hope you can join us for this special funders-only lunch to learn about how schools can support children in the development of healthy coping strategies and resilience in facing future struggles.
