From Treaters to Healers
Laura Porter works with leaders in over 30 states, providing education, facilitation, and empowerment strategies for building Self-Healing Communities. She provides support and services to a wide range of groups, from parents and youth who are convening neighborhood conversations, to philanthropic leaders and government officials who are using ACE science in investment and policy decisions.
Self-Healing Communities is a model for increasing the capacity of communities to prevent ACEs and their effects, developed by Laura Porter. Stunning success from the model, including reduction in the rates of major social and health problems, are documented in peer-reviewed journals, an article titled “Self-Healing Communities,” and in the documentary “Resilience” by KPJR Films.
ACEs are traumatic or stressful experiences that affect human development and were investigated in a landmark study called “The ACE Study”.
This series of webinars was provided by St. Joseph Health, Community Health Investment as part of its work to support the understanding of ACEs and the adoption of practices that support efforts that help Sonoma communities become more compassionate and resilient.

Resilience and Trauma Informed Practices ( 1:22)
Hanna transforms the lives of youth, families and communities impacted by trauma and adversity through resilience, connection and spiritual wellness.
We envision a world where every child grows up resilient and healthy, regardless of personal circumstances. We raise awareness about child trauma and early adversity while promoting the recovery and growth of individuals, organizations and communities. As a leading provider of trauma-informed care training in Sonoma County and Northern California, Hanna Institute aims to support child and family-serving systems with resources that build resilience and hope.
Sonoma Intersections partners with Hanna Institute and Dr Robert Macy
to bring the TIC lense to housing in Sonoma County
There is a strong and growing movement among housing advocates to advance policies and programs that ensure that all people—regardless of their income level, racial or ethnic background, or country of origin—have access to healthy and affordable housing. This movement is increasingly focused on building support for quality, affordable housing in all communities and helping people understand why housing is vital to our collective prosperity.

The International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies is dedicated to sharing information about the effects of trauma and the discovery and dissemination of knowledge about policy, program and service initiatives that seek to reduce traumatic stressors and their immediate and long-term consequences. ISTSS is an international interdisciplinary professional organization that promotes advancement and exchange of knowledge about traumatic stress.
The National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) was created by Congress in 2000 as part of the Children’s Health Act to raise the standard of care and increase access to services for children and families who experience or witness traumatic events. This unique network of frontline providers, family members, researchers, and national partners is committed to changing the course of children’s lives by improving their care and moving scientific gains quickly into practice across the U.S. The NCTSN is administered by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and coordinated by the UCLA-Duke University National Center for Child Traumatic Stress (NCCTS).
