The TRANSFORM Research Center recognizes that our communities and our nation have been struggling with many challenges that have been vividly highlighted over the past year. Across the United States, communities have been suffering from the consequences of the pandemic. Communities of color have been grappling with the collective trauma brought on by systemic and institutional racism.
Join the center in a conversation about the impacts of these traumas on our communities and about ways to work towards community resilience. To address the many complex issues facing our communities, we must build bridges across systems, sectors, and disciplines. The Monroe County Family Coalition and Connecting for Kids are examples of programs developed in response to trauma in the community. The speakers will discuss how these programs were created to meet the needs of family and youth in the community.
The TRANSFORM Center is a unique partnership between the University of Rochester (UR) and the University of Minnesota (UMN) with support from the Educational Development Center, Inc. TRANSFORM research is jointly conducted at the UR’s Mt. Hope Family Center and UMN’s Institute for Translational Research in Children’s Mental Health. The TRANSFORM Community Engagement Core (CEC) is housed at UR’s School of Medicine and Dentistry in the Department of Psychiatry, the Laboratory of Interpersonal Violence and Victimization (LIVV) and the Susan B. Anthony Center.
