About the Presenter: Heather Lamb

Heather Lamb is a Prevention Education Specialist with EveryChild. Having earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education from the University of Northern Iowa, Heather puts her early childhood knowledge to use to deliver parent support classes, prevention and trauma informed care training to the community. When not working, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, reading, listening to true crime podcasts, and learning new hobbies.

About the Training:

We all face tough times. Ongoing stress from tough times can lead to poor health and other challenges as the brain adapts to survive. Yet, research is not showing us what we can do to change these outcomes. Connections Matter highlights the importance that building caring connections with the children, families, and adults in our lives has on developing healthy brains, supportive relationships, and thriving communities. This evidence-based, interactive presentation describes how stress impacts the brain and why relationships improve individual and community well-being. Attendees will leave with specific ideas for the actions they can take in their professional and personal lives, and will end the session by identifying their next steps. Together, we can engage more people in creating environments that strengthen families from the start and give children and adults with a history of trauma an opportunity to heal.

This training will occur over Zoom. A link will be emailed to you after registration.
