Event Details

Healing the Hidden Wounds

Responding to Child Victimization

Each year millions of children are exposed to violence in their homes and communities. 

·            Exposure to violence, particularly multiple exposures, can interfere with children's ability to think and learn and can disrupt the course of healthy physical, emotional and intellectual development. 

·            Exposure to violence is associated with increased use of health and mental health services and increased risk of involvement with the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. 

In this workshop, you will learn how violence affects children, as well as the prenatal consequences of violence and  the  impact of teen dating violence.

Featured presenter:  Carla Snodgrass, Executive Director of of Prevent Child Abuse Tennessee

Who should attend: 

ü  Mental health administrators and practitioners serving children

ü  Child welfare professionals

ü  Resource parents

ü  Juvenile court staff and other juvenile justice professionals

ü  School psychologists, counselors and other educators

ü  All child advocates and other citizens concerned about effective services for the children of Southwest

This workshop has NASW certification for three (3) continuing education hours.  The event also qualifies as elective training for foster parents, and fulfills training requirements by the Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth for juvenile court staff.
