Wendy Dickens is here to talk trauma, adversity, shame, and hope.  She's worked with thousands of families in Shasta County, CA on the child welfare front and sees firsthand how generational cycles affect children today.

Not only does she teach about Adverse Childhood Experiences, but encourages understanding rather than judgment for families that struggle.  They still care about their kids!

She identifies the factors that BUILD adversity in children and the one thing they need to thrive.
 
Together we challenge the "ideal" of rugged individualism and instead aspire toward a supportive community.

Send this episode to a teacher or professional that works with kids - they'll benefit from her perspective and insight into creating trauma-informed approaches!
