Wake Up! with United Way: “Unteachable and Difficult: Understanding Childhood Trauma”

07:45 am to 09:00 am
The Mill, 642 N Madison St, Bloomington Ind.

Monthly speaker series featuring breakfast, networking, and an enlightening presentation and discussion of timely topics that directly or indirectly affect everyone in our area.

On Thursday, July 11th, the topic, “Unteachable and Difficult: Understanding Childhood Trauma” will be explored by Jeff Baldwin, Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bloomington; Kaitlyn King, Senior Clinical Therapist from Catholic Charities of Bloomington; and Jerry M. Jesseph, M.D., Ph.D., Clinical Professor with the IU School of Medicine.

When a child is labeled “difficult” or deemed unable to learn or socialize properly what might lie beneath the expressed behaviors? What referral and treatment options exist in our community and where are the gaps? Panelists will share their thoughts to help us unpack these questions and share a hopeful message of the possibilities for intervention and treatment. The session encourages audience participation through a moderated Q&A format.

Alongside friends, neighbors, nonprofits and community partners, learn more about issues that directly or indirectly affect everyone in our area. Attendees will have the opportunity to deepen their awareness about someone else’s reality while learning about the challenges, innovations, collaborations, resources available through area nonprofits, and how to get more involved in making a difference.

Presenting Sponsor: Old National Bank

Cost: The $10 ticket cost includes breakfast and coffee catered by One World, with any remaining proceeds supporting United Way of Monroe County's efforts to address the community's critical needs today, while reducing those needs tomorrow.
