Connections Matter is an in-person training designed to engage community members in building caring connections to:
Prevent childhood trauma, and
Understand how our interactions with others can support those who have experienced trauma.
The Connections Matter Georgia initiative is a collaboration between the Georgia Center for Child Advocacy and Prevent Child Abuse Georgia. The training curriculum is an evidence informed curriculum, developed using a robust body of literature by Dr. Linda Chamberlain and adapted for Georgia specific audiences.
As followers of Christ, we want all children to flourish and have the opportunities to become the fully expressed image of God that he created them to be. This seminar will help us to understand how trauma impacts learning and even the ability to accept and process love.
