In response to the strong feedback provided by participants at the May 20th Convening, TCE Positive School Discipline Learning Network is pleased to announce the webinar, "Invisible Wounds, School Safety and the Importance of Trauma Informed Schools" with Dr. Marleen Wong on October 17th, 2013 from 1:00pm - 2:30pm. Tackling the challenge of school discipline and reducing suspensions and expulsions requires a multidisciplinary approach. One facet is addressing trauma, both oblique and invisible, to better meet the needs of both students and the community. The presentation features Dr. Marleen Wong, Associate Dean and Clinical Professor School of Social Work, University of Southern California, along with several discussants to respond to Dr. Wong's presentation and provide local examples. The presentation will provide a brief history of the events which have changed the culture of Education and some local attempts to study the educational and mental health effects of student's exposure to violence. The concept of Trauma Informed Schools will be introduced with suggested ways into which schools can assess and provide services to students who have suffered from traumatic stress, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder and Depression associated with exposure to violence. Participants will both learn of evidenced-based approaches and resources to enable them to implement trauma-informed approaches in their local environments, as well as actively engage Dr. Wong and the other presenters throughout the event.

The Answer is Cooperatives
Foodscape Long Beach, with the help of Building Healthy Communities: Long Beach, is excited to announce a series of 6 workshops on cooperative development. Your leadership and constituents are hereby invited. This message is to inform and reach out to the groups you represent, as we feel it is likely pertinent to your mission. We are advocating that one of the strongest emerging strategies for economic resilience and social wellness is rooted in cooperatives. And so, our series is part of a campaign we are starting called, "The Answer is Cooperatives."
Our workshop curriculum is an interactive and informative event for business owners, workers, consumers, and producers to learn about cooperative development. We will go over principles, ethics and economics of worker-cooperatives to demonstrate how they are both socially and financially secure. The workshops will be the same program spread over the next year at different locations around Long Beach.
The first workshop is:
Thursday, October 17th
