NJ Department of Children and Families Hope and Resilience Symposia


Two-Part Symposia Series on Long-term Recovery

The Hope and Resilience Symposia are a two-part series for mental health professionals to learn new perspectives, tools, and techniques to deal effectively and intervene appropriately with individuals affected by Superstorm Sandy.

When a disaster hits a community, the trauma can reverberate with individuals not directly impacted by the disaster. Trained professionals skilled in recognizing disaster-induced trauma can expedite recovery.

The New Jersey Department of Children and Families is pleased to present the Hope and Resilience Symposia in collaboration with the New Jersey Department of Health, New Jersey Department of Human Services, and Rutgers University Behavioral Health.

This unique training will feature individuals who have successfully overcome seemingly insurmountable personal adversities. Join us for a day of training and inspiration!
