Event description

Description

Stress, trauma, and poverty can cause significant cognitive limitations and impair brain development. These effects can impose lifelong limitations on learning capacity and educational attainment. Understanding this can help support trauma-informed learning environments, decrease barriers for marginalized demographics, and lessen the impact of childhood trauma on lifelong wellbeing.

Jackson Heraid is an RN, paramedic, and educator who has held numerous roles in emergency services, public health, addictions treatment, and mental health support for 12 years. He is currently the community initiatives manager for the Maskwacis Ambulance Authority, a mental health therapist for a regional mental health crisis response team, and a part time educator at NAIT.

Following Mr. Heraid's presentation, local agencies will be gathering to discuss the impacts of trauma on service delivery.

Water and cookies will be available at the break, but please feel free to bring a brown bag snack or meal for the session.
