“The event was a great fit as a pre-conference session of the Handle with Care Conference,” says Crittenton President & CEO, Kathy Szafran. “Research demonstrates that many West Virginia children experience early childhood adversity which impacts their school career, transition to adulthood, and long-term health. Crittenton has been committed to trauma-informed care and research since 2010. There are now many partnerships, across a variety of systems, that are exploring and utilizing trauma-informed practice in the state. Anyone who works with young people will find the film and the presentation a good source of information on trauma-informed care and brain development.”
