From the Federal Partners Committee on Women and Trauma:

Building a Trauma-Informed Nation: Moving the Conversation into Action

On September 29-30, 2015, the Committee held this unique event with more than 2,000 participants each day. They came together from across the country, either in person or virtually, to answer the question, “What would a Trauma-Informed Nation look like?” The event offered four catalyst sessions on Communities, Justice, Health and Education, with each session integrating how workforce and employment issues are affected. For those who were unable to attend or did participate and want to experience the sessions once again, we are providing the archived presentations from those speakers that offered slides.


Download the report on this groundbreaking event. Hosted by the Federal Partners Committee on Women and Trauma, one of the largest interagency collaborations in federal government history, the event highlighted violence and trauma as a public health issue requiring urgent and immediate attention. The Committee currently has more than over 100 members from 40 divisions of 13 Federal agencies. The highly anticipated report, developed with support from SAMHSA’s National Center for Trauma-Informed Care, highlights the importance of an integrated, gender-responsive, public health approach to violence and trauma. It also documents the power of interagency collaboration to in addressing trauma in education, justice, the workplace, and the community.
