QI Connect: The Jeff Wallace Story: A Memoir of Leadership and Resiliency

Date and time
Wednesday, 20 September 2023, 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm (GMT)
Virtual event. Virtual.

This event is part of the QI Connect webinar series hosted by Healthcare Improvement Scotland.

We are now pleased to announce the rescheduled QI Connect session with Jeff Wallace will take place on Wednesday 20th September from 3pm-4pm.

In this learning webinar, we hear about how to support young people through trauma.

A single traumatic event. Two people affected. One person appears unaffected. The other suffers drug use, failed relationships and encounters with the law. This can result in the diagnosis of mental health issues.

Why does one seem unaffected by the traumatic event? Why does the other continue to struggle?

Social scientists, criminologists and other public health advocates have been studying why. The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study identified that early adversity has implications.

Our Speaker

Jeff Wallace

Jeff Wallace

Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice and Human Services and Coordinator of Diversity at Iowa Wesleyan University

Jeff uses his life experience and unique insight to guide and educate the next generation.

In this webinar, Jeff Wallace will discuss:

  •  how trauma informed care is being used in youth facilities and other systems of care.
  • his own life of incarceration at the age of 14. Being in a prison at 17, and then spending four of six years in solitary confinement.
  • how he initiates trauma informed approaches in different systems of care. And how he believes anyone can initiate the same changes. Leadership, courage and consistency all help resiliency.
  • what comes after resiliency?
