Safe Shelter’s 2020 Symposium will include a full day of Keynote, Plenary and Breakout Sessions. Presenters will explore how trauma neurologically, physically and emotionally impacts children and youth, recognizing the challenges of young survivors, and the latest research and promising practices in effective intervention.

With a Keynote that sets the stage for the day, (Ana do Valle, founder of the Soma Healing Center) the morning sessions will focus on early childhood treatments using wrap around and culturally effective approaches. The afternoon will explore elementary-aged and teen years. The day will end with a panel and Q&A.
