Dr. Elizabeth Miller of Futures Without Violence hosts a discussion of the research behind a simple, strength-based universal education approach for addressing child adversity that taps into families existing capacity for empathy and altruism and to allows them to create change for themselves and others that may be affected by trauma and adversity.
