Trauma-informed Training August 2018

An expert in prevention programs for children, Judy Knapp will be the guest speaker at the Soroptimist International of Placerville’s meeting Wednesday, August 8 at 6 p.m. and August 22 at 12 p.m. at Denny’s, 99 Fair Lane in Placerville.

Judy will speak about the El Dorado ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) Collaborative and the work being done to encourage all systems to use trauma-informed approaches and services. The effects of ACEs can show up decades later compromising one's physical and mental health. Time does not heal all wounds!
