Charleston Child Trauma Conference – Bridging Science and Practice October 18, 2017
The overarching goal of the Charleston Child Trauma Conference is to deepen professionals’ knowledge in the area of child trauma and traumatic stress, with an emphasis on bridging research and practice. Critical sub-goals include: 1) advancing knowledge of current research on the incidence and prevalence of trauma exposure, 2) increasing understanding of the most current research on the etiology of trauma-related
disorders, 3) advancing knowledge in evidence-based treatments for children and caregivers who have experienced traumatic events, and 4) strengthening knowledge of the aforementioned areas with respect
to underserved and diverse groups. In doing so, we aim to heighten professionals’ understanding of the most current research, with an emphasis on how this can be applied in clinical practice.
