Description

Building Resilience in Children Exposed to Family Violence

Panel Discussing featuring Dr. Chan Hellman, author Hope Rising

Children are naturally resilient. However, exposure to family violence in childhood can have a significant impact on children’s development into healthy adulthood. Fortunately, research has shown that this impact can be lessened when children feel hope and optimism. During this panel discussion we will explore how resilience and hope can be nurtured in children exposed to family violence, and how we can support children and families on their path to healing.

Featuring Dr. Chan Hellman, professor of social work and Director of the Hope Research Center at the University of Oklahoma. Dr. Hellman's research is focused on hope as a psychological strength helping children and adults overcome trauma and adversity.

Moderated by Tonia Hunt
