Perry Huff has been hired at Ampersand Families in Minneapolis, MN. This organization works with adolescents in foster care and transitional youth. From Perry:
"During my second interview they posed questions to me about the trauma, grief, and loss that these youth face and they also mentioned Bruce Perry! I felt very prepared to talk about trauma and what I had learned about trauma's impact on brain development. I have to credit the fellowship for providing me with this wealth of knowledge on trauma and youth because without it I likely would not have been able to answer those questions."
