ATN’s COVID-19 Response

TOUCHING TRAUMA AT ITS HEART

EMPOWERING TRAUMA-INFORMED FAMILIES, SCHOOLS, AND COMMUNITIES

Making a Difference in a Time of Dis-Ease

The rise of dis-ease

Over the last weeks, we have awakened daily to the rising of dis-ease. The blurry edge between fact and fabrication has brought us to question our questions. It has activated the sort of fear that causes toilet paper to be prized ahead of reason and parity.
