Trauma Conference for Law Enforcement/Mental Health Teams

Conferences & Symposia
Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Denison hosted the first conference on trauma for Licking County law enforcement and mental health professionals. More than 250 Licking County law-enforcement officers, attorneys and mental health professionals gathered on Wednesday, May 24, for discussions on trauma.

A Columbus Dispatch article noted: 

“The first-ever Licking County Trauma Informed Approaches Summit held at Denison University had been in the works for months. It was designed to address trauma’s impact on law enforcement, legal professionals, court staff and mental health specialists and those they serve.

“The idea for Wednesday’s event was developed by court staff, seeking relevant trauma-related education, said David Edelblute, of the Licking County Probate and Juvenile Court. Then law enforcement and the county bar association got involved to develop the summit.

“’These officers, they see things that nobody should have to see, and they do things that nobody should have to do,’ said Kenneth Yeager, director of the STAR — Stress, Trauma and Resilience — program at Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center.

“’To think that it doesn’t impact them is enormously wrong,’ he told conference attendees.
