We created this hour-long webinar because the effects of childhood trauma play out both personally for individuals, but also, have tremendous costs for society.  There is much that society needs to acknowledge about the inequitable experiences of our community members, but also, there is much that all of us can do to mitigate these outcomes.  This introductory webinar sets the stage for much of our work and is a jumping off point for the webinars that go deeper below.  There is no charge for this webinar, but we do ask that you consider sharing with others and complete the survey.
Trainer: Virginia Watahomigie, Coconino Coalition for Children & Youth

“Though I am familiar with the topic of ACES, each time I participate in training, I learn something new. Your model of ACES presented a light of hope with interventions that can occur at each level.” “It was a great training and I look forward to more in the future.” “I am recommending this training to several folks…” “Thank you for providing amazing webinars…” “Very good training.” “this was critical information that we need now that we all are facing a critical situation.” 


These webinars to go deeper into understanding trauma and healing especially concerning historical experience.  This training further takes into account current issues and experiences.

Thank you for helping continuing the learning and growing!” “Stories, her calm voice pulled me in, tremendous knowledge, relating topic to COVID-19 and current events” “I appreciated the historical information, cultural focus, research and the weaving of these aspects together. The inclusion of perspectives given current events was powerful. The sharing of personal experiences was beneficial as well.”


We were joined by guests from all over the world for the recording of this webinar. As a testament to Kevin’s international work we had participants from England, Canada, the Netherlands, Belgium, Texas, Virginia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Arkansas, and of course, all over Arizona. This piece is an argument for moving away from treating individuals, community members and families as the “recipient” of services, from medicalizing unlivable lives, from not acknowledging systems of injustice and a move toward the scientifically-based call to action of participation, truth and community healing.

“This presentation is outstanding- thank you!” “Thank you for the space and conversation….this was excellent!” “I love Kevin Campbell’s approach and how it’s backed by stacks of research. I enjoyed the way it was presented.” “As someone that works for an Indigenous agency, I appreciated the perspective on moving towards a more Indigenous way of thinking for social services.” “I’m still mad at COVID, but having the chance to attend this training from across the country was incredible. I value any chance to listen to Kevin speak and share, and I’m so grateful to CCC&Y for doing this!” “I love how passionate Kevin is and how much knowledge he brings to his teachings” “It was a paradigm-shifting presentation. It re-framed my thinking about serving families.”


Imagine a community in which the effects of childhood trauma are clearly understood, the impact of inequitable experience is acknowledged, and people are aligned toward creating equitable access to assets and protective factors that support positive life outcomes. This hour-long training explores the roadmap to creating change at the community and system level by using the findings of both leadership research and today’s thought leaders.

It really can make a difference.”


We created this hour-long webinar due to the importance mindfulness holds for both individuals and for those we are working with.  There is much healing to be had, mindful choices to be made, and support to our community.  There is no charge for this webinar, but we do ask that you consider sharing with others and completing the survey.  Trainer: Rene RedDay, Building Community

This important 1 hour long webinar is an exploration of the causes and effects of bullying that is research based, connects the issue to both childhood trauma and later substance use and most importantly, helps the audience to understand what can be done to mitigate and create climates that prevent bullying. Trainer: Bradley Snyder, Dion Initiative for Child Well-Being and Bullying Prevention

Excellent presentation. I learned so much — I thought I knew what bullying was but boy was I wrong.” “Very clear, concise, empirically based presentation. Very succinct and not too long. Terrific presenter. Also, knowing what DOES NOT WORK was very helpful.” “I am now more informed of how to develop a team at school in order to establish an evidence based school wide policy that will be effective in managing bulling as well as how to address bullying with my students.” “Brad did a fantastic job in his presentation. He was knowledgeable and provided a continuous offering of excellent facts and information.”


For further research and data related childhood trauma, resiliency, substance use and statistics for Coconino County please read our assessment.

This report sets the stage for a unique road map for using trauma-informed and adverse childhood experience knowledge as a prevention plan.  The research field contains much information about the effects of childhood experience on later outcomes, but this report uniquely uses that knowledge, especially what is known about developing resiliency, and puts it to use in the prevention field.

We can no longer say- this is not my problem.  The effects of childhood trauma have tremendous costs to society, and it is imperative that we develop the understanding of why and what can be done.  We must begin developing ways in our own sphere of influence to help.
