September 30, 2015
12:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Indiana Statehouse


Join the Indiana State Department of Health by participating in this live webcast in the Rice Auditorium at the Indiana State Department of Health.

The United States is experiencing a public health crisis: an epidemic of trauma, violence and toxic stress.

In response, efforts to create trauma-informed change are growing exponentially across the nation. Learn how communities are responding and develop your own strategy to amplify change through four “Catalyst Sessions:”


Presentations will highlight effective collaborations, promising practices, programs at the state and local levels, as well as first-person experiences, including workforce systems and worker issues. Following the presentations, interactive sessions will facilitate participant discussions and strategic action planning in their local areas or agencies.

There are three ways to participate:

  1. Via webcast through an “Amplifier Site” which is a gathering of others interested in this issue (Click here to learn more about amplifier sites)
  2. Individually via webcast at your computer
  3. At the live event in Washington, D.C.

Register for participation using the tabs in blue on the left.

Please note that webcast participation is limited, so please register soon!

From successful programs, policies and approaches being implemented across the country about how you can use these models, tools and resources in your work, organization or community.

An Amplifier site is a local gathering in your organization or community to screen and participate in the live webcast, then facilitate a post webcast conversation to catalyze action. (Click here for more information)
