Promoting Resiliency of Trauma Exposed Communities Together (PROTECT) is the Illinois initiative to mitigate toxic stress and trauma in early childhood. PROTECT will expand access to trauma-informed resources systemically and statewide, coordinate efforts among systems, and engage and work with families and communities exposed to trauma to build resilience.
As part of PROTECT, the Illinois Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics is hosting multiple regional Open Forum Sessions to assess the strengths and gaps for early childhood service providers who access trauma-informed resources such as training and coaching. Light refreshments will be provided.
