About This Page
Thanks to a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, we were able to partner with the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media to create a research page for our work on trauma and resiliency. We believe that understanding the impact of trauma, adopting trauma-informed practices and supporting resiliency is vital to the long-term success of our work, and there's a growing body of research to support us. Trauma, especially in childhood, has a significant impact on people's physical, mental and behavioral health. Trauma is not destiny, however, and evidence-based practices that promote resiliency in individuals and communities are an important part of our work. We hope that this page will serve as a resource for other organizations engaging in similar efforts.
