The Illinois ACEs Response Collaborative recently offered a webinar featuring the Partnership for Resilience’s efforts build trauma sensitive schools in the southern Cook suburbs.

In this webinar, the Southland Partnership Organizer Andrea Ortez discusses how organizers, educators, and clinicians can utilize community partnerships to provide trauma-informed support to both teachers and students. Ortez addressed the early lessons of the Partnership and the types of relationships that practitioners, educators, and advocates must foster together to ensure the needs of the whole child are met.
