Recurring Event Event Series: INN + PACEs: Trauma Workshop Series

INN + PACEs: Trauma Workshop Series

January 25 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Please note: This event is for INN members only.

The Institute for Nonprofit News and PACEs Connection are co-sponsoring a series of four one- and 1.5-hour workshops for journalists about the science of positive and adverse childhood experiences and the policies and practices of trauma-informed care. When journalists learn about the science behind trauma, they ask better questions, produce more informed and useful stories for their communities, and have a better understanding of themselves in their interactions with the people they interview, their colleagues and their supervisors. This workshop is NOT to learn about how to report on the science of trauma itself; it’s about how to incorporate this knowledge in your reporting, your news organization and your personal life.

You can register for all four sessions here.

About the speaker

Jane Ellen Stevens is founder and publisher of PACEs Connection, comprising the social network and the news site The sites focus on the science of positive and adverse childhood experiences (PACES), and how people are implementing health-centered, resilience-building practices based on that science. The network’s supporters include the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, The California Endowment, Genentech, St. David’s Foundation, the Lisa & John Pritzker Family Fund, and the George Sarlo Foundation. Stevens has been a health, science and technology journalist for more than 35 years.
