Decatur, GA – The DeKalb Human Services Department will host a virtual workshop for parents and other stakeholders on March 24, at 5:30 p.m. to discuss the potential impact of trauma and stress on students, a press release says.

This workshop, titled “RISE UP,” will be held in partnership with Kaiser Permanente and will feature theater, experiential learning, and arts integration techniques to engage participants.
