The Reformed Church in Hungary hosted a conference on 12-14 February about childhood trauma —what is it, what are its effects on children and teenagers, and how to work with traumatized children.  The keynote speaker was Eamon Anderson, an American social worker who works with American Indian tribes in Montana, and she works with the University of Montana with research in the relatively new field of childhood trauma — the understanding and treatment of children who have undergone traumatic events.  This same conference was also held in Tulcea, Romania, for people who work in orphanages in eastern Romania.  This conference was made possible by a generous grant from the Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA).  Eamon had given a similar conference in Russia in March 2013, which was well received, and Russia wants her to return to give a follow-up conference in the future.
