An Educational Briefing with NCA and the NCTSN

December 3, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Hosted by National Children’s Alliance (NCA) & The National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) & in coordination with The Congressional Victims Rights Caucus

In America, a child is abused every thirteen seconds. For so many of these children, the impact of this serious crime is felt long after the abuse stop. Understanding the potential lifelong consequences of child abuse and all forms of child trauma on children and their families is key to helping them heal.

With this in mind, please join NCA and NCTSN for a frank discussion on child abuse and child traumatic stress as we share lessons we have learned about best helping these children and their families heal.


  • Abigail Gewirtz, PhD, NCTSN and University of Minnesota
