 On behalf of Reach Counseling we would like to welcome you to the second Trauma Informed Symposium – Wisconsin:  Healing Trauma in Youth and Adults.

Keynote Speakers:

DR. VINCENT J. FELITTI

Dr. Vincent J. Felitti is one of the world’s foremost experts on childhood trauma. Leading the charge in research into how adverse childhood experiences affect adults, he is co-principal investigator of the internationally recognized Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study, a long-term, in-depth, analysis of over 17,000 adults. This study famously revealed a powerful relationship between our emotional experiences as children and our physical and mental health as adults.

KAREN MOORE, OTR/L

Ms. Moore developed The Sensory Connection Program, an occupational therapy based program using individual treatment, group treatment, sensory diets and sensory sensitive environments.  It is a person-centered, strength oriented, skill building model of care to help a person move from self-awareness to self-regulation and on to self-care and eventually to self-healing.  Her break-out presentation at the last Trauma Symposium was the most highly rated of the event.
