CANCELLED 2020 Northeastern Minnesota Early Childhood Summit

Cancelled. Postponed until further notice.

Growth Through Trauma-Informed Strategies
Rick Griffin’s training moves beyond the typical information on Adverse Childhood Experiences to address the burgeoning science regarding trauma and resilience. His dynamic presentation will include three main topics:
• the NEAR Sciences, a cluster of emerging scientific findings in the fields of Neuroscience, Epigenetics, ACE Study, and Resilience;
• Brain States, the critical transition from knowledge of the science to insight into individuals impacted by trauma; and
• ROLES, CRI’s signature training on identifying and responding to trauma. ROLES is an acronym for Recognize, Observe, Label, Elect, and Solve core strategies that take us below the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

Rick Griffin, M.Ed. is Director of Training and Curriculum Development for the
Community Resilience Initiative, the nation’s first community resilience network and the engine behind the acclaimed documentary, Paper Tigers. He is the former Director of Jubilee Leadership Academy, a trauma-informed school in Washington state. Rick has a Master of Education degree and uses his education to develop cutting-edge content and deliver engaging presentations. He speaks to thousands of groups all over the country
and is widely recognized for his work with trauma-informed practices. His experience allows him to consult seamlessly with schools, businesses, and community organizations.
Rick wowed attendees at the Nurturing the Northland Conference in Duluth last spring, and we are fortunate to be bringing him back to engage, challenge, encourage, and inform participants at the 2020 Early Childhood Summit.

Team Registrations are due April 10th. The Summit is by invitation only.
