PA Office of Advocacy and Reform, PA Attorney General’s Office Team Up to Launch PA Trauma-Informed Network

first_img Press Release,  Public Health As a companion to the Trauma-Informed PA plan released last week by Governor Tom Wolf’s Office to guide the commonwealth and service providers statewide on what it means to be trauma-informed and healing-centered in PA, the Office of Advocacy and Reform (OAR) and the PA Attorney General’s Office have worked with over a dozen community-based ACEs and trauma initiatives to launch the “PA Trauma-Informed Network” on the ACEs Connection Platform.“There was a clear emphasis on building grass roots support and empowering people at the local level among the PA Trauma-Informed Think Tank members that mirrored my experiences with successful anti-poverty work over the years,” said Dan Jurman, the Executive Director of OAR. “When we saw what the Attorney General’s office had been working on, it was a no brainer to throw our support behind the great work.”The Network is one of the recommendations in the Trauma-Informed PA plan to connect ACEs and trauma-informed coalitions and movements in counties and communities across Pennsylvania, as well as organizations and individuals interested in building them.The Network will help connect all of Pennsylvania’s existing and future trauma-informed coalitions by sharing best-practices and lessons learned, and the resources to help people heal from and prevent trauma. The work on this initiative began in 2017 with the Attorney General’s Office under the leadership of Attorney General Josh Shapiro with the assistance of Robert Reed, Executive Deputy Attorney General in charge of Special Initiatives, and was reinforced by the Trauma-Informed PA Think Tank and OAR this summer.“This network will serve as an invaluable tool to bolster existing trauma-informed coalitions and create new ones with a more well-rounded representation of all parties crucial to success including education, health, human services, law enforcement and criminal justice, among others,” said Reed.Current counties/localities whose ACEs and trauma initiatives have linked to the PA Trauma-Informed Network page include:ChesterDelawareErieCrawfordCumberland, Franklin, and Perry (South Central PA)LancasterLehigh, Northampton and Carbon (Lehigh Valley)Montgomery County (Pottstown)PhiladelphiaIndividuals or organizations interested in learning more or building their own initiative to connect to the network should go to https://www.acesconnection.com/g/pennsylvania-trauma-informed-network August 03, 2020 PA Office of Advocacy and Reform, PA Attorney General’s Office Team Up to Launch PA Trauma-Informed Networkcenter_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Jackson handed Ireland fly-half role

first_img Jackson has passed a fitness test on the minor hamstring strain sustained during training on Monday, enabling him to continue in the number 10 jersey with Ian Madigan offering cover from the bench. Team manager Mick Kearney has also revealed that Munster prop Stephen Archer will fill the third vacancy left in the team that was announced on Tuesday after being selected on the bench. Ireland will start with Paddy Jackson at fly-half for Saturday’s RBS 6 Nations clash with France at the Aviva Stadium. Jackson, 21, will be winning his second cap in Saturday’s must-win showdown between the two biggest flops of this year’s Six Nations, while Madigan will make his debut if he steps off the bench. “Paddy kicked in the Aviva Stadium yesterday and kicked well and trained fully this morning,” Kearney said. “Paddy’s hamstring first tightened up after Monday’s session so there was a bit of concern about him. “He sat out the session on Tuesday, received treatment and did some light running in the afternoon. “He then came through kicking at the Aviva Stadium yesterday afternoon very well, so that clarified things for us, but up until then there was some small doubt. “There was no discomfort this morning so he’ll be fine.” Ireland team: R Kearney (Leinster); F McFadden (Leinster), B O’Driscoll (Leinster), L Marshall (Ulster), K Earls (Munster); P Jackson (Ulster), C Murray (Munster); C Healy (Leinster), R Best (Ulster), M Ross (Leinster), M McCarthy (Connacht), D Ryan (Munster), P O’Mahony (Munster), S O’Brien (Leinster), J Heaslip (Leinster, capt). Replacements: S Cronin (Leinster), D Kilcoyne (Munster), S Archer (Munster), D O’Callaghan (Munster), I Henderson (Ulster), E Reddan (Leinster), I Madigan (Leinster), L Fitzgerald (Leinster). center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
