Dr. Bessel van der Kolk talk - October 26, 2017

Presented in partnership with Berkshire United Way.

Dr. van der Kolk, author of New York Times best-seller The Body Keeps the Score: Mind Brain and Body in the Healing of Trauma, discusses the largest public health issue in America: the effects of abuse and neglect on the thinking and behavior of children. He then explores a range of approaches that have been shown to reverse the effects of traumatic experiences on mind, brain and body—including yoga, theater and neurofeedback.

Nonprofit Summit - September 25, 2016

In 2016, the Mahaiwe hosted the first Berkshire Summit for Nonprofits.

The intention was to connect with other nonprofit leaders as we CELEBRATE our contributions, SHARE information, BUILD a common knowledge about the county’s assets, and IMAGINE how we can help solve some of our common challenges.

With approximately 500 organizations in Berkshire County, nonprofits are a substantial economic and social force, one that you make possible with your dedication and hard work.

We may have different missions in human services, the arts, environment, and education, but we all share the goal of creating an even more vibrant and sustainable community.

Here are some of the resources that were shared at this convening.
