Lessons for Connectors in Overcoming Trauma and Building Resiliency

The 19th National Conference on Child Abuse & Neglect (NCCAN) will salute the resiliency of our host city by closing our conference with a presentation by two of New Orleans’ own: Joy Osofsky, a pre-eminent writer and leader on the topic of how infants, children and families heal from trauma, and D.J. Markey, a community leader and crusader for the rights of children with disabilities and their parents. This inspiring session will leave us all with a deepened understanding of what resiliency really means.
