December, 2015. Mayoral Candidate Briefing, 2015: Sandra Bloom: Why Should Philadelphia Become a Trauma-Informed City?
February, 2016. PHILANTHROPY NETWORK GREATER PHILADELPHIA , Giving with Impact: The Trauma Revolution: What Funders Need to Know about Trauma-Informed Care
There is revolution afoot. Belief systems about the causes of “misbehavior” that have been a part of culture for centuries, are quickly changing as a result of new research on brain development and how childhood adversity impacts educational, health and social outcomes. We now know that childhood toxic stress literally changes the architecture of the developing brain.
To address these recent discoveries, the Trauma-Informed Care movement is about building capacity in people, organizations, systems and communities to help us better understand and more effectively serve children and families impacted by stress and adversity. Years from now, we will look back at this point in time, and see that it was a turning point for reforming our systems of care and education in our region.
In this session, Dr. Sandra Bloom, MD, Drexel University School of Public Health and Diane Wagenhals M.Ed, Child Trauma Academy Fellow will share new research and best practices on trauma-informed care. A panel discussion, facilitated by Allison Acevedo, United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, will highlight local funders and their efforts in local initiatives and partnerships designed to build a trauma-informed region.

TRAUMA, STRESS AND THE ARTS FOR HEALING
Thursday, April 28, 2016
Co-presented with the Thomas Scattergood Behavioral Health Foundation
What unique role do the arts play in supporting communities and individuals who are impacted by trauma? Join us for this conversation among practitioners and policy-makers in the behavioral health and arts communities. Dr. Sandra Bloom (School of Public Health, Drexel University and founder of the Sanctuary Model) will share fundamentals about the impacts of trauma (which may include abuse, poverty or violence in the community) and dig deeply into how creativity and expression can support healing and resilience for those who have experienced trauma. Artists from ArtWell, Philadelphia Young Playwrights, and the Village of Arts and Humanities will lead interactive sessions to share strategies for integrating the arts for youth (visual art, writing, video) with trauma-informed practice. Come ready to add your experience to the conversation and leave with more tools, networks and resources to support your community…and yourself.
