October 20, 2017 - October 21, 2017
Understanding N.E.A.R.: Neuroscience, Epigenetics, ACES, Resilience – Building Capacity and Creating Self-Healing Communities
Join us for an exploration of the impact of trauma on the brain development of children prenatal through 3 years and the implications across the life course. We’ll take a deeper look at historical and generational trauma and the key components to build self-healing, thriving communities.
We will use an Open Space Technology (OST) methodology to explore the possible ways to implement the new learnings. Open space meetings result in transformative experiences for the individuals and groups involved. It is a simple and powerful way to catalyze effective working conversations and to truly invite organizations to thrive in times of swirling change
