To address the crisis of violence impacting so many of us, experts across the region will come together to explore the physical and psychosocial consequences of living in neighborhoods under the constant threat of violence and point a path to healing.

 Resources will be on hand for residents impacted either directly or indirectly by violence and young people living with loss and grief due to exposure to violence. The workshop will also benefit professionals who work in traumatized neighborhoods: social service, school, child care, medical and mental health workers and clergy.

Speakers include:

Katherine Streit, Uplift Center for Grieving Children; Carla Brown, Violence Prevention Initiative,  Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia;   Lisa Christian, Anti Violence Partnership of Philadelphia; Malika Lovelace, Philadelphia Anti-Drug/Anti-Violence Network;  Charles G. Zimbrick-Rogers, MD, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia;  Alllison Gibbs at Therapy Concierge;  Rev. Canon Toneh Symth, Canon for Mission, Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania.


Sponsored by the Schuylkill Deanery of The Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania and the Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral.
