Announcing our newest curriculum, Mind Matters: Overcoming Adversity and Building Resilience, to equip youth- and adult-serving programs with powerful tools to help clients move past the effects of adverse experiences.

Young people who have experienced trauma and toxic stress often have difficulty regulating their emotional responses when facing challenges in school, life, and relationships. As students learn the skills and strategies in Mind Matters, they can begin to say, “I am not a victim of what happened to me.”

“This is a long-overdue curriculum. We've known for years that many of our students have experienced trauma and other adverse life events.”

Bill Doherty, Ph.D.
