Campaigning for Trauma-Sensitive Practices
“This story is so important to me, and I believe to our culture, that if I could dance on the table tops right now to get people to pay attention to it, I would.”– Oprah Winfrey on the topic of childhood trauma
Thank you for joining the Devereux Center for Resilient Children’s campaign to promote the resilience of all children, and to educate yourself and others on the negative impacts of childhood trauma and the need for trauma-sensitive care. The D.A.N.C.E.R. Campaign was inspired by Oprah Winfrey’s powerful 60 Minutes interview about childhood trauma and the healing power of resilience and relationships. Thanks for taking the time to join us as we strive to promote the healthy social and emotional development of children and families nationwide!
