Image says Welcome to Southern Tier Independence Center with grey dove image on left side of text.


Imagine a world that is accessible to everyone--where no barriers to independence exist; where you're allowed to be yourself and free to let your disability be just one more part of you. Together we can shape this world. Join the Independent Living (r)evolution! Our unity can be a potent force for change. In addition to providing services, the Southern Tier Independence Center is a gathering place for people and information. Our joint efforts in understanding the issues and concerns of people with disabilities can pave the way to this more accessible world. The Center believes that people have the right to be responsible for making their own choices. By working with you rather than for you, we respect your ability to know what's best for you. If any of our services seem like a good option for you, we'd like to meet you! All services are free unless otherwise indicated.

Building Resiliency: Links between Stress, Coping, Social-Emotional Development, and Learning

March 4th, 9:30-11:30
Southern Tier Independence Center


Dr. Lisa Blitz will provide an overview of the neurobiological, behavioral, and psychosocial impact of trauma and toxic stress on our children, youth, and families. Intervention strategies that promote resilience and healing will be reviewed. Parents, educators, and human service providers welcome.

About the speaker:

Lisa V. Blitz, PhD, LCSW-R, is a social worker, researcher and educator with 25 years of experience in mental health and social justice centering on culturally responsive trauma-informed practice and organizational development. She received her BA from California State University, Los Angeles, and completed her MSSW and PhD at Columbia University.

Dr. Blitz is currently an associate professor in the Binghamton University Department of Social Work and Co-Director of the Institute for Multigenerational Studies. She is engaged in community-based participatory research with urban and rural schools to develop practice approaches that eliminate disproportionately negative outcomes for students of color and students who are economically disadvantaged.
