Event Details

The Ripple Effect: An Integrative Framework for Enhancing Trauma-Informed Practice Across Systems will be held October 4th, 2017 from 8:30am-4:30pm.


Sonoma County ACEs and Resiliency Fellowship and the Child Parent Institute bring you together for our first event of the second ACEs and Resiliency Fellowship series. This series will focus on Trauma-Informed approaches to community healing. Details will be announced about the 2017-18 calendar at this event.

This workshop presents an integrative framework for understanding and communicating across systems about how trauma can affect a child, a family, and a system.

The framework was developed by Chandra Ghosh Ippen, Christopher Layne, and Bob Pynoos of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) and is adapted from core trauma concepts identified and ratified by the NCTSN Core Curriculum on Childhood Trauma Task Force.

The Ripple Effect translates complex trauma concepts using metaphor, visual models, common language, and rich case example and shows:

1) the domains of functioning affected by trauma;

2) the mechanisms through which trauma affects development, and

3) intervention pathways.

This workshop offers foundational trauma knowledge for clinicians learning evidence-based trauma treatments and highlights ways to share trauma theory with family members and across systems (e.g. schools, child welfare workers, mental health, medical practitioners, police) as we work jointly to lessen the impact of trauma exposure.
