This two-day conference is the first ever convening of providers working with diverse children and families in urban settings, and will provide training, resources, and networking opportunities. The conference will explore pressing issues, such as understanding violence and the impact of trauma exposure on communities, naming how race and ethnicity impact service delivery, identifying and challenging barriers to providing culturally responsive care, working with grief and loss, and the importance of self care for providers.
