Compassionate Care for Youth on the Margins

With today’s understandings of the impact of toxic-stress and trauma on brain health, the implications for work in areas of adversity is paramount for ministry. Working in constant exposure to trauma changes both people and organizations. However, bringing a trauma-informed perspective to that environment can change both the narrative and the outcome. Using the power of story and image, this session will focus on three distinct themes:

-Impact of toxic-stress on brain health

-The role of toxic-stress in organizational life (vicarious trauma)

-Bringing a trauma-informed approach to our prayer
