This year, Dr. Bruce Perry will explore how trauma plays a role in the youth mental health crisis and the importance of attachment and relationships in promoting mental health in children, and recognizing the importance of trauma-informed care. Dr. Perry will also address policies and practices that prioritize prevention and early intervention and encourage resilience building in youth.
Dr. Bruce Perry’s work has impacted clinical practice, programs, and policy around the world.
His experience as a clinician and researcher has led many community and governmental agencies to consult him following high-profile incidents involving traumatized children and youth such as the Sandy Hook shooting, the September 11th terror attacks, Columbine school shooting, and many others.
