School of Social Work lecture on 11/14 features renowned expert on childhood trauma
Far too many of our children face the impact of trauma in their lives. Many of us have felt the effects of violence ourselves or know someone personally or professionally who is grappling with the devastating reality of a traumatic experience.
We are fortunate to be bringing to our campus a renowned expert on childhood trauma to help us understand the developmental disturbances that occur in children exposed to violence and the promising interventions that can aid emotional healing and recovery.
The 26th Annual Edith Harris Endowed Memorial Lecture; Trauma, Justice and Heroes will be held on Thursday, Nov. 14, 2013 , from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Community Arts Auditorium on Wayne State’s campus. The lecture will be presented by Steven Marans, M.S.W., Ph.D. who is a Harris Professor in the Child Study Center, Director, National Center for Children Exposed to Violence/Childhood Violent Trauma Center at the Yale Child Study Center, Director, Trauma Service and Professor of Psychiatry.
