The Playing Field is an early childhood program that has intentionally integrated children from very different backgrounds. The Playing Field has addressed many of the barriers that prevent children from low income families from accessing high quality programming. One of these barriers is child behaviors, often associated with trauma.

Circles are a process that can lift barriers between people and create an environment for increased understanding and trust, deep listening, community-building, and strengthening relationships across lines of hurt, conflict, division, power dynamics, and varying perspectives.
  • Todd Costello, MSN, MBA, Executive Director of Community Living Alliance (CLA)- "Trauma and the Disability Community"- The disparities in the current service delivery system leave the disability community misrepresented and underserved. CLA was founded by people with disabilities and other concerned stakeholders to create a person-centered service model that honors the preferences of those it serves to live and work independently in the community of their choice. In this workshop you will learn how CLA is applying the principles of TIC to redefine its workplace culture and client experience
  • Terri deRoon-Cassini, PhD, Associate Professor, Medical College of Wisconsin & Christine Larson, PhD, Professor, University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee, Milwaukee Trauma Outcomes Project- "The Neurobiology of Traumatic Stress Symptoms: A case-based perspective" - This presentation will cover the neurobiological underpinnings of posttraumatic stress symptoms. We will cover the impact of acute stress on the brain and biological systems that aid adaptive response to stress and how dysregulation of these systems may lead to failure to resolve acute stress, resulting in chronic distress. We will also consider the impact of chronic and early stress on these neurobiological systems and the stress regulation. The impact of trauma on these neurobiological systems will be considered in the context of a particular clinical case to directly link symptoms and experiences with neurobiology and to discuss treatment and outcomes with this patient.
  • Dr. Armando Hernandez, PhD- "From Brains to Narratives: Reflection & Discussion"- In this breakout session, Dr. Hernandez will expand on and allow reflection of his keynote presentation from the morning. This session will also offer participants more in-depth discussion of the topic and give more space for direct questions.

Breakout Session #3 Options (2:15-3:30pm)

  • Elizabeth Krubsack, MS, LPC, School Mental Health Consultant, Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction- "Social-Emotional Learning as a Universal Trauma Sensitive Practice" - In this workshop, participants will learn about DPI’s newly released competencies for social and emotional learning (SEL) as a universal, trauma sensitive practice.

It is applicable for providers, parents, law enforcement, etc. who are looking to gain more skills and apply new techniques when they are in a conflict, have heightened emotions, or are working with others experiencing conflict and heightened emotions. Often, when dealing with hostility and violence, people tend to fast-track and problem-solve how to make it go away. However, deeper understanding, a “nonviolent” attitude (this will be explained), and empathy is needed in order to make the intervention sustainable.
