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 program for the community to help audiences learn why it’s critical to help children heal from trauma and how they can play a role in changing a child’s life.
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 as live presentations and through On Demand videos.
Chester Street Foundation presents several free educational events for the community throughout the year. These live presentations are offered both virtually and in person and feature Founder and CEO, Shawn Alex Nemeth (a trauma survivor ), along with other licensed mental health professionals. If you would like to partner with Chester Street Foundation in organizing a free event, contact email@example.com for more information.
