Now in month 20 of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have all been struggling with losses, pain and grief. How does an extended period of trauma impact our bodies and our brains? We don't think as clearly, we are more emotional, we struggle to make decisions.  

Join Dr. Betsy Stone to discuss the impact of trauma on our children and ourselves. Intended to be educational and open, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with the speaker and ask questions throughout. You’ll gain an understanding of resilience, post-traumatic growth, and how to support youth who have experienced emotional trauma. Register for your Zoom link today.
