Women to Women Fall Forum on Childhood Trauma

Join us for “A Community Conversation: Confronting the Impact of Trauma” from 4-6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2019, at ISU Alumni Center, 1110 N. Main St., Normal.

Doris Houston, Interim Director of Social Work at Illinois State University, and Brenda Temke, who is the Guardian Ad Litem for children in the abuse and neglect courtrooms in McLean County, will be our panelists. Each will speak about the effects of trauma on children who are involved in the child welfare system. Retired educator Judy Donze will moderate the forum and pose questions to the panelists, followed by questions from the audience.

All of this is intended to focus the understanding of the issues and concerns about children exposed to trauma with the hope that grant applications from local agencies might address some of these issues.

Additionally, a member of the Women to Women Grants Committee will discuss the grants process and dates/deadlines.

The event is open to the public. You’re encouraged to bring a friend or work colleague who is community-minded.
