Presented by Clifford Beers Community Care Center, the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, and KPJR Films, Healing the Generations is a two-day conference which brings together trauma-informed authors, leaders, and changemakers whose work focuses on resilience, trauma, and anti-racism. Collectively, we recognize the health implications that grief, loss, political unrest, and racial trauma have on the human body.  This intimate gathering will explore the intergenerational impact of structural racism and promote ways that together, we can collectively envision healing.
