Building Resiliency for Youth Success

Educators, physicians, providers and a number of other community partners discussed what we can do as a community to mediate the impact of trauma and help youth become more resilient.  Simple things like listening to youth and going out of the way to address them and include them, can increase their self-worth and make youth more resilient to negative occurrences. We can all help youth understand that they matter to us, that we care, and that they are valuable beyond measure.  For more details read WXXI’s article and go to CCSI’s website.


From ACEs to Assets: Growing Resilience in Monroe County

On February 8th, CCSI partnered with Wilson Foundation, Rochester Area Community Foundation, and Monroe County Office of Mental Health to host a sold out event bringing together educators, physicians, providers and a number of other community partners to discuss how trauma and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) impact the health and well-being of youth in Monroe County — and importantly, what we can do as a community to mediate the impact and help youth become more resilient.

Attendees watched the film Resilience: the Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope, which set the stage for a review of data from the most recent Monroe County Youth Risk Behavior Survey.  These data results illustrate the prevalence of trauma in our community – and how the accumulation of ACEs increases the risk for lower academic performance, issues related to mental health, substance use, violence, and suicidal thoughts or actions. Check out the article in the Democrat & Chronicle, as well as our CCSI website for more details.

 

Sold-Out Session on Thursday to Discuss How Adults Can Help Youth Build Resilience

More than 200 educators, physicians, advocates, and community members will be participating in a sold-out, four-hour session on Thursday, February 8, to dig deeper into how trauma and adverse childhood experiences impact the health, well-being, and success of Monroe County youth — and what they can do to help youth be more resilient.

Data and analysis from the most recent Monroe County Youth Risk Behavior Survey will help set the stage for discussion from 8 a.m. to noon in the Memorial Art Gallery ballroom. This survey provides an understanding of the prevalence of trauma in local youth and how the accumulation of adverse life experiences (ACEs) directly increases the risk for poor grades and concerns related to mental health, substance use, violence, and suicidal thoughts or actions.

Understanding where the risk lies leads to new and important directions to intervene at the earliest stages by building resilience. In a groundbreaking step, new measures were included in this analysis that allows educators, community members, and all child-serving providers to hold themselves accountable for reaching the most vulnerable youth through asset development and collective action. 

To drive home the importance of action, the event will feature the new documentary
Resilience: the Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope. This evocative documentary explores three real-world examples of the positive impact of trauma-responsive care and resilience building. Through the lens of a primary care physician, a school, and a community services organization, discussion participants will see that this work is possible, vital, and changes lives.   Click here to read more.
 

Trauma-Informed Care – Organizational Self-Assessment Tool

TIC-OSAT is a strengths-based organizational self-assessment tool that provides organizations with a point in time “snapshot” of where they are in their journey towards becoming trauma-informed. The tool employs the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) 10 Implementation Domains as a framework for guiding survey participants through a sequence of questions to assess implementation of trauma-informed care practices within their organization. TIC-OSAT allows organizations to view aggregated survey results from their leadership and staff and display these results within a concise, real-time report along with recommendations for bolstering Trauma-Informed Care practices.
