Leslie Lieberman, Senior Director of Training and Organizational Development and Health Federation of Philadelphia Board Member, Joe Pyle, have been selected to be part of Governor Wolf's new 25 person state-wide Trauma Informed Think Tank. The geographically and professionally diverse group of "cutting-edge thinkers" regarding ACEs, trauma and resilience, will meet frequently over the next 3 months to define what it means to be a trauma- informed state, as well as set standards for the state that can guide state agencies, local governments, and non-profit organizations across the Commonwealth.
"I am honored and humbled to have a seat at this table. I look forward to sharing what I have learned through the opportunities to lead trauma-informed initiatives at HFP such as Multiplying Connections and Mobilizing Action for Resilient Communities as well as to learn from my many esteemed partners participating in the Think Tank. Together, I am confident we can make significant contributions to creating a Commonwealth working to prevent and address trauma for all Pennsylvanians."
