Hi neighbors,

I'm sharing this interesting local event coming up on April 12th at 7pm at
the Everett at 9 Duncan Avenue...

"This Brain Café includes a presentation by Vanna Phrommavanh, a
school-based clinician at the Providence Center. Vanna grew up in war-torn
Laos, escaping to a Thai refugee camp before coming to America. Drawing on
these experiences, she now helps trauma-impacted youth in Providence’s most
challenged schools. In addition to Vanna’s presentation, Everett artists
will perform personal stories of their own trauma. These stories help youth
in schools gain the courage to share their experiences. These short
presentations will be followed by a dialogue with the audience around the
issue of trauma in schools.

The evening shares the work of the Building Trauma-Sensitive Schools
initiative (BTSS). A partnership between the Providence Children and Youth
Cabinet, the Providence School District, the Providence Center, RI Student
Assistant Services, and Everett, the initiative is designed to improve
outcomes for trauma-impacted youth in our schools. Clinicians and artists
work together, incorporating theater into an evidenced-based clinical
trauma program.

This Brain Café series is part of Everett Company’s research and
development process in creating a new work, entitled Good Grief.

Brain Cafés have been made possible through major funding support from the
Rhode Island Council for the Humanities.

Free and open to the public!"
