2018 YO Breakfast


JANUARY 25, 2018
7:30-9:30 a.m.
Bridgeport Brewery
Portland, OR

Serendipity serves many students with histories of traumatic life experiences. We recognize the potential impacts of trauma on the development, learning, and response to treatment in our students. We understand that the purpose of Trauma Informed Care is to promote resiliency, health and wellness for those who have experienced trauma and to create a minimum standard of care in addressing the impact of trauma.

In this YO Breakfast, we explored the neuro-biology aspects of trauma as it relates to adverse childhood experiences and emotional regulation.
