We heard from the Great Rivers HUB about how they make their work more trauma-informed by having their Community Health Workers collect ACE (Adverse Childhood Experiences) data from the clients they work with.

We also talked about next steps for getting the message about resilience and trauma-informed care out into the community. Instead of a full Foundation training, our champions discussed options for hosting viewing sessions for the film Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope. Our RTIC team has several DVDs with educational screening licenses, and the film is available for purchase for individual viewing (not screening) on Google Play, YouTube, and Vudu.
We reviewed a draft of a facilitator's guide and toolkit, which we will add to our website as it gets developed. We will continue development of this guide based on the feedback we received. If you'd like to share your thoughts, contact us here.
