About: Join Echo Parenting & Education for the historic Changing the Paradigm conference – an opportunity to explore and discuss the intersections of childhood trauma (Dr. Felitti), trauma informed care (Gabriella Grant) and nonviolent parenting (Ruth Beaglehole).

At Changing the Paradigm you will learn about the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study, the tools you can use to make your work more trauma informed, and the importance of nonviolent parenting in not only preventing childhood trauma, but also protecting against, and aiding recovery from, those traumas that are outside a parent’s control.

In addition there will be field-specific break-out groups, in-depth training on Echo Parenting & Education’s empathy-led approach to family and systems change, a workshop led by Gabriella Grant on how to implement trauma informed care, as well as a chance to participate in theater, visual arts and yoga for the healing of trauma.
