KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Robin Hernandez-Mekonnen PhD, MSW (University of Pennsylvania), is an Associate Professor of Social Work and faculty of the Child Welfare Education Institute at Stockton University. Dr. Hernandez-Mekonnen has over 20 years of child welfare experience and has been engaged in research and policy work for the past decade. Her areas of interest are child welfare, system reform, Title IV-E and workforce improvement, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), the intersection of child welfare and immigration, Mexican diaspora, and mixed method research and policy. Her presentation will provide an overview of trauma and how community members and educators can identify signs or sources of trauma. Dr. Hernandez-Mekonnen discusses the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) study, and its many correlates and sequelae. Understanding both local connections and public health implications for communities and educators is key to advancing research, policy, and practices. Developing a conscientious approach to addressing ACEs is key to prevention and establishing a resiliency-based framework to strengthening communities.
Breakout Sessions will provide participants with opportunities to explore how to identify signs and sources of trauma and develop effective strategies that insure all children are able to thrive in our schools and communities.
