This past year has reinforced that resilience is not automatic. It is built over time, through our unique lived experiences, cultivated by our surrounding support systems, and can shape our well-being.
On behalf of the Peace and Justice Institute, you are invited to the third Creating a Resilient Community (CRC): From Trauma to Healing Conference. Learn about cutting-edge research on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), neuroscience and evidence-based programs building resilience across our community.
Keynote speaker Donna Jackson Nakazawa is an award-winning journalist and internationally recognized speaker whose work explores the intersection of neuroscience, immunology and human emotion. Her mission is to translate emerging science in ways that help those with chronic conditions find healing.
Join us for this unique two-day conference hosted through a new virtual venue experience. Early registration runs through Friday, March 5, 2021. General Registration is available through Monday, April 12, 2021. To view the conference website and agenda, click here.
