About Natick
map
Natick Massachusetts was established in 1650 and is a suburban industrial town located on the upper basin of the Charles and Concord Rivers. It is nestled beside the Massachusetts Turnpike and Route 9 making it very convenient.

Form its earliest colonial days Natick was a prime target for development because it had good agricultural land as well as fish runs and water power. Natick also supported itself with some lumbering and grist and sawmills were established. Local lore claims that several loads of men from Natick journeyed out to the California gold rush in 1849 and returned with enough capital to start their independent businesses. With the first shoe sole maker in 1827 the shoe industry dominated the community by the early 19th century and shoes were shipped to the western and southern markets by 1830. By the 1880’s Natick was the third largest manufacturer of shoes in the country.

Today Natick has become an industrial Boston-oriented suburban community that includes intense strip mall development on Route 9.

Understanding the Role of Trauma in the Roots of Violent Behavior
Riverside Trauma Center's 5th Annual Conference Understanding the Role of Trauma  In the Roots of Violent Behavior Cosponsored by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health's Suicide Prevention Program Early Bird Registration Deadline 9/18/15   Conference Description: Violence often has a visible and powerful impact on people. Less visible is the early trauma that may contribute to an ongoing cycle of violent acts. Conference presenters will explore the many ways in which early childhood and interpersonal trauma potentially shape future violent behavior, and discuss the clinical implications for mental health practitioners. Keynote Address:  "Can the Effects of Trauma Be Transmitted Intergenerationally?" Recent advances in molecular biology, genomics,and epigenomics, have now provided paradigms for understanding long-term effects of stress. This presentation will focus on intergenerational transmission of trauma as a particularly enduring effect of stress. Most of the research has been conducted on adult children of Holocaust survivors, but has now generalized to include children of other trauma survivors such as children born to pregnant women who survived the World Trade Center attack on 9/11. The research has evolved into one that explains the contribution of early environmental experiences — including parenting — on highly conserved molecular and genomic processes. These changes in and of themselves do not signify pathology, but provide a paradigm for understanding long-term effects of profoundly important events. The work has already led to a better understanding of biological risk factors for PTSD, and predictors of outcome in response to trauma. Rachel Yehuda, PhD, has focused on research in the fields of Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) for over 25 years. She is currently a professor of Psychiatry as well as the Director of the Division of Traumatic Stress Studies at the lcahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. She also serves as the Director of Mental Health at the James J. Peters Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Her research on PTSD has included both human populations and animal models, neuroendocrinology, neuroimaging, genomic and molecular biological studies of trauma, experimental therapeutics, biomarkers, genetic and epigenetic heritability, gender differences, and suicide. She has authored over 300 highly-cited journal publications, chapters, and books in the field of traumatic stress and the neurobiology of PTSD. Additional Presentations: "Intimate Partner Violence: Behavioral, Social and Biological Implications" Mary Cheyne, PsyD, is a clinical and forensic psychologist who has more than 14 years of forensic experience in threat and violence risk assessment and management, divorce mediation, and divorce/custody evaluations. In addition to serving as Diplomate for the National Center for Crisis Management, Dr. Cheyne is a founding member of the New England chapter of the Association of Threat Assessment Professionals. Joanna Bridger, LICSW, Clinical Services Director of Riverside Trauma Center, will present on her work with trauma-informed care and trauma-informed approaches to understanding and responding to violence. There will also be a panel to discuss different perspectives on trauma and violence and how they are related. Cost: Register by 9/18/15 to pay the discount rate of $125 per person or $112 per person for groups of 4 or more. The regular registration cost (deadline is 10/14/15) is $139 per person or $125 per person for groups of 4 or more. $75 per person for Riverside Community Care employees. Continuing Education: Applications for 5.5 hours of continuing education credits will be submitted for Social Workers, LMHCs, LMFTs, and Nurses.
