From high levels of Adverse Childhood Experiences, to job and financial struggles, racism and other forms of inequity and injustice, traumatic stress is epidemic today. Climate change is aggravating all of these existing adversities, and adding many new ones as well. Yet, California is leading the U.S. in finding innovative new ways to prevent personal, family, and community traumas--and reduce carbon emissions. This conference will show that by connecting these issues California can become the First Trauma-Informed Human Resilience-Enhancing State in the US for Climate Change-Generated--and Many Other--Traumas and Toxic Stresses.
NVP author Carl Anthony will lead a workshop on the first day of the conference.
