AAP Trauma and Resilience ECHO training: Dr. Forkey conducted the AAP Trauma and Resilience ECHO training – a weekly online program for pediatricians and their teams, including nurses, physician assistants, social workers, office staff and others, who have an interest in increasing knowledge and improving skills to better assess and manage children & families exposed to adversity and trauma.

  • Level 1 AAP Trauma and Resilience ECHO consists of 6 sessions and was designed to help the learner develop familiarity with childhood trauma, its presentation in pediatric practice, its impact and effect, and basic skills to be a resource for families. You can watch the video recordings of the presentations here.
  • Level 2 AAP Trauma and Resilience ECHO consists of 12 sessions and was designed to help the learner develop advanced clinical skills in trauma recognition, screening and response, interventions and resources, and competency to implement trauma-responsive care in his/her own practice and to train others.
