Wednesday & Thursday, November 15 – 16
Portland State University – University Place Conference Center

Climate change will aggravate all of these adversities, and add many new ones. Numerous programs exist throughout the Pacific Northwest to address traumatic stress.

This conference will show how by breaking down silos and linking these issues, a powerful human resilience building movement can be launched that prevents harmful individual and group reactions to climate impacts while advancing social equity and reducing emissions.
