Webinar focuses on building resilience, hope after childhood trauma

“A Small World: Building Resiliency and Hope after Childhood Trauma” is the title of an upcoming webinar sponsored by the Church of the Brethren’s Discipleship Ministries and the Anabaptist Disabilities Network. The online event takes place on Tuesday, Feb. 28, at 8 p.m. (Eastern time). Participants may earn 0.1 continuing education units.

Please pray… For all who participate in this webinar, that they may learn valuable skills for helping the children in their care.

“Nearly half of all children have experienced a traumatic event in their lives,” said a description of the webinar. “These experiences have the potential of altering the ways children view the world and themselves, and these impacts can last well into adulthood. However, this is not the end of the story. Communities and supports can and do provide care that can shift outcomes and change lives. In this presentation, we will define trauma and its effects and learn resources and ways of being to build resilience and hope.”

Presenter Jon-Erik (J.E.) Misz, who is currently secretary for the Anabaptist Disabilities Network board, works in Goshen, Ind., as a licensed clinical social worker and clinical supervisor in a community health center. He holds a master of social work degree from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and a master of divinity from Duke University. His interests integrate mental health, faith, and spoken word poetry, and he has led discussions both locally and nationally on subjects such as trauma-informed care, anxiety, depression, and adolescent mental health.
