“What we focused on for so long in trauma-informed work is the brain, not realizing that the first responder is the body.”- Dr. Linda Chamberlain
Dr. Linda Chamberlain
We are excited to announce Dr. Linda Chamberlain as our featured speaker for the 2024 NWCF Forum, a virtual event on February 8, 2024. Dr. Chamberlain is an internationally recognized speaker known for her keen abilities to translate science into practical strategies. An expert for over two decades in the field of brain development, she will share the latest research and science-supported tools to reset the nervous system. While science continues to validate the important role of these tools in working with trauma, many of these strategies have longstanding, deep roots in cultural traditions and practices.
Dr. Benjamin Danielson, youth advocate and Center Director of AHSHAY, returns to the Forum to give opening remarks and lead a panel from the community. Drs. Chamberlain and Danielson will be joined by panelists who discuss the different ways they use mind-body practices in their work with children, youth, and families.
Attendees will come away equipped with an expanded understanding of the role of the nervous system in healing, as well as practical tools and skills they can immediately apply to their own work. These learnings will have applications adaptable for a wide range of settings across different age groups.
This unique learning experience is open to all, including: direct service providers, educators, caregivers, researchers, therapists, funders, policy makers, those in the legal and medical professions, and others who work with and care for children.
Our event sponsors help keep Forum registration accessible with different price levels depending on need ($45 standard, $25 reduced rate, a no-cost scholarship).
