Trauma and Neighbourhoods: Harnessing Community Resiliency

Trauma and Neighbourhoods: Harnessing Community Resiliency is a half day conference exploring the connections between individual trauma and collective trauma.  We will share approaches on how neighbourhoods can respond after a violent or traumatic incident.  An opening panel and dramatic performance will be followed by concurrent workshops. The workshops will give participants an opportunity to discuss the impact of violent and traumatic incidents in their community, and how to build community resiliency using the Post-Incident Neighbourhood Support Network.   The conference is intended for both service providers, such as community health and resource centres, social housing providers, police officers, as well as neighbourhood and tenant leaders.
