Changing the Paradigm Conference

Save the Date! Our next conference will be held on March 15 & 16, 2017!


“See it, believe it, act on it!” That was the exhortation at the end of the Building Trauma-Informed Schools & Communities Changing the Paradigm Conference. Around 250 people gathered to share experiences, best practices, questions and dreams as Echo hosted the first ever national conference on trauma-informed schools.

Workshop topics included undocumented students and mental health, Restorative Justice (Strategy Center), trauma training for teachers (LAEP), listening circles for parents and students (WestEd), resiliency building (TRI), and parents on educating children with attachment disorder (ATN).

All that, plus spoken word, yoga, dance, and art!
