five14 Talks: Esme Fuller-Thomson - Best Practices for Resilience and Recovery
This video was produced by the Children's Aid Foundation.
HERE'S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS VIDEO:
Professor Esme Fuller-Thomson holds the Sandra Rotman Endowed Chair in Social Work at the University of Toronto. Her research examines the association between childhood maltreatment and adult physical and mental health. Her five14 talk is titled Achieving Optimal Mental Health Despite Childhood Abuse.
Five14 Talks started in response to requests from young people in care to have a greater voice in shaping public perceptions. The Children’s Aid Foundation created five14 Talks to celebrate Children and Youth in Care Day (May 14, 2015) to give young people in child welfare a voice and and inspire change. five14 Talks is a forum much like TED Talks, where Canada and the world's leading thinkers in Child Welfare are invited to give a talk in 14 minutes (or less individually).
