Building Community Resilience
Join members of the Community Safety Workgroup at 1:00pm on March 21st to watch a webinar about an exciting new approach to address Adverse Childhood Experiences and building community health called "Building Community Resilience." Click below for a short video introducing BCR.
An article about this idea can be found here. Here's a quick excerpt: "We know that resilience – or one’s ability to ‘bounce back’ in the face of adversity – can protect an individual from the accumulation of stress due to adverse childhood experiences. BCR...takes this understanding to the community level in order to foster resilience that buffers against adversities impacting whole communities – and to break the cycle of poor health and other lifelong outcomes."
