Quotes "On behalf of the Trauma and Grief Component Therapy for Adolescents (TGCTA) Learning Collaborative Faculty, Participants and Planning team, we would like to sincerely thank you for your willingness to share your personal experience and perspective on how we can continue to build a more trauma-informed system for young people placed in Juvenile Detention Centers across the country. Partnering with you on the Family engagement and transition planning session, helped our participants better answer the question of "To ensure that youth can maintain their coping skills after release with the support of their families, can introducing trauma-informed parenting help families with reunification?". Your presentation during this session made our final Learning Session a thought-provoking and memorable event for everyone present! Quotes

Quotes "We absolutely loved the presentation . . . Permanency is one of the most important things for our CASA volunteers to understand when working with children. After your presentation, I believe it was very clear for them that a permanent, stable home should always be the goal to work towards. They really liked how you interacted with them and engaged them in a "conversation like" presentation. We really appreciate your time and effort, and will be sure to contact you for future in-services." Quotes
