Leadership@100%: Who's who when it comes to ensuring trauma-free and thriving children, students and families
Special Edition: Excerpt from 100% Community by Katherine Ortega Courtney, PhD and Dominic Cappello
We will end our epidemic of trauma with courageous and compassionate leadership. For any problem-solving to occur, local innovators must first identify the elected leaders and stakeholders who can push evidence-informed solutions, creativity and progress. The book provides an overview of how governmental, nongovernmental and private sector systems work including challenges, successes and opportunities for engagement and collaboration. Chapters focus on the role of the leaders who influence our state, county and city priorities and funding: state lawmakers, state cabinet secretaries, county commissioners, mayors and city council members, and school board members. We also explore the messages about leadership from the news and media (including Oprah).
