Community Engagement & Education
Our piece of the puzzle
Many organizations in Central Florida are doing amazing work around ACEs, trauma-healing and resilience. At the Peace and Justice Institute, our contribution is education and community engagement.
Community Common Read:
Building Resilience in Children and Teens
PJI would like to invite you to participate in a common read Facebook Group focusing on books addressing ACEs, trauma healing, and resilience. Last year, we read The Deepest Well by Dr. Nadine Burke Harris. This year, in order to prepare for further community work with 2020 Conference Keynote Speaker, Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg, we are going to read his new book Building Resilience in Children and Teens. This new common read will begin on July 22nd, 2020!
