“What Happened to You” Book Club

By: Barbara Kauffman, Director of Prevention Services

As always, I’m excited about the Prevention Team’s ongoing programs and events that you’ll learn more about later in this newsletter. This fall, though, I’m really excited to talk about a program PIK is hosting with the MC Education Partnership and The Institute of the Center for Great Expectations. The October webinar will focus on Dr. Bruce Perry’s and Oprah Winfrey’s new book, “What Happened to You”?, where –through personal conversations-the two authors explore how early childhood experiences influence the people we become. The webinar will include discussion of the book through the eyes of trauma professionals and a panel of reps from the school, law enforcement, medical and family sectors.

Please join us in October to share in the discussion and learn how helping and healing starts with the question “What happened to you?” rather than “What’s wrong with you?”.”
