When We Heal A Traumatized Child, We Heal Our Community

We believe education is a critical component to helping traumatized children on their road to recovery and have designed our TraumaTALKS for professionals who are on the frontlines of this issue, including psychologists, counselors, and social workers.

TraumaTALKS are high-quality trauma-informed-training and professional development presentations, featuring Chester Street Foundation’s Founder and CEO, Shawn Alex Nemeth (a trauma survivor), along with other licensed mental health professionals.  TraumaTALKS are offered through On Demand videos with Professional Development credits for mental health professionals.
