What is Weitzman ECHO Childhood Trauma in the COVID-19 Era?

Weitzman ECHO Childhood Trauma in the COVID-19 Era works on what we know about trauma and its impact on youth, families, schools, and providers and assists participants with putting plans into motion using today’s resources. This 10 session program connects primary care medical, behavioral health, and school-based health providers to a community of peers and subject-matter experts.
