The Ripple Effect: An Integrative Framework for
Enhancing Trauma-Informed Practice Across Systems
Presenter: Chandra Ghosh Ippen, PhD
The Ripple Effect training will explore and define infant mental health from the perspective of the infants and their families, and include the broader perspective of professionals in the field, i.e. Home Visiting, Early Intervention, Case Work, Pediatrics, Mental Health, Early Care and Education.
The Ripple Effect translates complex trauma concepts using metaphor, visual models, common language, and rich case examples. This workshop offers foundational trauma knowledge and highlights ways to share trauma theory with family members and across systems (schools, child welfare, mental health, medical practitioners, police).
Chandra Ghosh Ippen is the Associate Director of the Child Trauma Research Program at the University of California, San Francisco and the Director of Dissemination for Child-Parent Psychotherapy. She specializes in working with young children who have experienced trauma and has co-authored over 20 publications on trauma and diversity-informed practice, including the manual for Child-Parent Psychotherapy, the children's story "Once I Was Very Very Scared," and the "Trinka and Sam" story series.
