In the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) study conducted by Kaiser Permanente and the Center for Disease Control, researchers discovered that childhood traumas impact an individual's health and well being throughout their lifespan. The more adverse experiences a person reported occurring in their childhood, the more likely that person was to experience a host of health, social and emotional problems as an adult.
In this training, we look to bring awareness of the study's findings and to teach people that although any childhood trauma and stress can have a negative impact, as a community we can create an environment of healing and resilience. Children and families can thrive to build healthy relationships, regardless of their childhood experiences.
You will learn:
How childhood trauma and stressors shape the developing brain and impact the physical, mental health and social emotional functioning of adults.
Tools for building resilience among children and adults supporting those who have experienced trauma or toxic stress
Wellness tips and resources that you can incorporate in your daily life.
Refreshments will be provided.
*Please note that childcare will not be available.
