Lesley Institute for Trauma Sensitivity Keynote Address

During the last few decades, there has been a flurry of research on the role of hope in recovery from adversity, including traumatic exposure. It is becoming clear that hope and hope- and relationship-focused practices are critical components of resilience and recovery. This presentation will inform participants about the current science of hope as it relates to the use of relationships to build resiliency in the face of adverse experiences.

Cassie Yackley, Psy.D., has spent more than 25 years committed to understanding and effectively addressing the impact of traumatic/adverse experiences on children, caregivers/families, and systems. She brings together recent discoveries from developmental neuroscience, attachment, implementation science, and reflective practice to help audiences develop skills of relationship and self-awareness in ways that transform organizations, promote staff professional growth and wellness, and improve outcomes for the consumers they serve.

Free and open to the public.
