Greetings ICTC partners,

Featured Presenters:

Kara Thompson & Taijun Waters, Selah Freedom
”CSEC Advocacy Training”
Through this curriculum, youth-interveners will leave with a greater understanding of the realities of sex trafficking, its root causes, how to identify victims, and how to take action. This training is beneficial in educating anyone working with youth on the commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC).

Dr. Kalyani Gopal, SAFE Coalition for Human Rights
Dr. Gopal will focus on the trauma that victims of sex trafficking experience, and how we can best provide trauma-informed support to victims.


For those who can't make it in person, we'll be streaming the meeting via Skype for Business. Contact for more details.


About the 2019 Pediatric Webinar Series

A collaboration between Children's Hospice and Palliative Care Coalition (a division of Coalition for Compassionate Care of California), Pennsylvania's Pediatric Palliative Care Coalition (PPCC) and Greater Illinois Pediatric Palliative Care Coalition (GIPPCC), the 2019 Pediatric Webinar Series was created to raise the visibility of pediatric palliative care in the United States and to build clinicians' competencies and confidence in providing care to children.  

Pediatric Palliative Care Coalitions are dedicated to advancing access to quality pediatric palliative care and bereavement support through education, advocacy, research and support.  Statewide PPCC's represent hospital systems, home health and hospice agencies, community organizations, government leaders and families in a commitment to optimize the quality of life for every child living with a life-threatening illness.
