The wisdom of prevention vs. cure
Violence against women, intimate partner violence, sexual assault
Public education - 'what is different about trauma'
Disability organizations
Acquired brain injury
Education but also support for front line workers (vicarious traumatization)
Families involved in child welfare

Issue: individuals being barred from multiple service organizations for reasons related to trauma.

QUESTIONS AND SUGGESTIONS:

Question - Is there an existing community of trauma services that have been meeting/learning here in Peterborough or is this the first time it has come up?

Question - How can Children's Aid work from a lens of trauma and safety?

Question - How can United Way National support us?

Suggestion - Use mailchimp for emails, reduces 'reply-to-all' and avoids nightmare of 'hijacking' lists.

Suggestion - "The Park Listener" (mentioned in discussion) is a clever Public Relations idea.
