Pathways to Prevention: A Centre for Childhood Trauma is excited to present our Luminary Speaker Series: a series of virtual talks with experts in developmental trauma, healthy families, and resiliency.

On May 25, we will launch Pathways to Prevention with our first speaker, Dr. Bruce Perry. Dr. Perry will discuss the importance of building healthy relationships, communities, and systemic structures in the context of brain development, recognizing that the more we know about the neurodevelopment of the brain, the more we can actively prevent trauma and disruption in the lives of children, families, and communities.

Q&A with Dr. Perry to follow presentation. 

The event will be recorded and available to view for 30 days after the presentation. All those registered for the event will receive a link to the video following May 25th.

Tickets sales have now closed.
