Tali Raviv is the Associate Director of the Center for Childhood Resilience at Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. She has been with the Center for Childhood Resilience since 2009, and has more than 15 years of experience in community and school mental health. Dr. Raviv’s work focuses on increasing knowledge and awareness about the impact of childhood trauma on children’s development and wellbeing, and translating evidence-based interventions for traumatized youth to school and community settings. She has particular expertise in program development and evaluation for at-risk youth and families, including those exposed to poverty. Most recently, she co-authored the resource book, Creating Healing School Communities: School-Based Interventions for Students Exposed to Trauma which is one in a series aimed at supporting clinicians who are working in schools and communities. In this episode, Matt and Tali discuss what trauma in children can look like in schools and how prevalent trauma can be in all populations.
