DESCRIPTION
Everything a person experiences in their life matters. When it comes to children, the research is clear, childhood stress and trauma alters brain architecture and can impact adult health. The Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) Study is the largest study investigating the health and social effects of negative childhood experiences. In this Webinar you’ll learn the history and specific findings from this study. We’ll explore the ways in which the findings from this study and subsequent related work can inform our practice. We’ll discuss strategies such as early identification and assessment, reducing risk and exposure and nurturing resiliency and skill building as effective interventions. We have the power to change the negative course for the children in our care. The information from the ACE Study is at the foundation of trauma informed care. The information in this Webinar may not be easy for us to hear but its importance is worth our time and attention.
