Building a Trauma-Informed Community of Care

Resiliency Puzzle

We hope to be a resource, a learning aid, a nurturing hand, and a healing soul for those on their journey of wellness. We hope these efforts will continue our advocacy, outreach, impact and community growth.” 

 -Tonya Hotchkin, Vice President of Clinical Services

Tanager Place offers critical resources and support for educators, parents, care providers and community members to build resiliency in children and families who have experienced trauma.

Trauma is a physically or emotionally distressing experience that affects individuals in different ways. By building resiliency—or the ability to bounce back from adversity—we help children who have experienced trauma learn to regain a sense of security and well-being. Because trauma can lead to a sense of hopelessness, resiliency training also helps instill a sense of capability in children, so they can feel confident in their ability to heal and self-regulate.

Our next Resiliency & Trauma-Informed Care Symposium will be held virtually on May 12, 2021. Register here!


The presentations from and the video of our virtual May 2020 Pre-Symposium is available to the public.
