Communities Foundation of Oklahoma

Award Date: December 16, 2019
Awarded: $5,000

Bridges to Hope is a free event open to all educators, non-profit partners, tribal entities, other government agencies and any organization who currently works with at-risk children. The Oklahoma State Department of Education will host Dr. Bruce Perry to discuss his research and how it can be implemented in child welfare. Dr. Perry’s clinical research over the last ten years has been focused on integrating emerging principles of developmental neuroscience into clinical practice. This work has resulted in the development of innovative clinical practices and programs working with maltreated and traumatized children.
