On January 13th and 14th, Lakeview's Youth Program Director, Dr. James Lewis and Lisa Rivard provided a training on childhood trauma as a result of exposure to violence. More than 50 NH Fish and Game Officers were in attendance for this complimentary training in Concord, NH. The basic take-away message to the group was that these officers see much more mental illness and children traumatized by exposure to violence than they do at Lakeview or any other facility. Lakeview, however, has considerable resources in understanding how to respond to mental illness and to children from a developmental perspective. Dr. Lewis utilized modular training that had been developed specifically for various law enforcement entities and distributed handouts.
Please join us in welcoming Dr. Becky Brown to Lakeview Specialty Hospital & Rehab as the Director of Youth Services. Dr. Browns comes to Lakeview with extensive and comprehensive clinical, program development and administrative skills.
