Understanding Adverse Childhood Experiences
Join us to learn about landmark research that highlights the relationship between chronic physical and behavioral health issues and childhood trauma. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are the leading cause of health and social problems in our nation and the most powerful determinant of the public’s health. Preventing ACEs is the greatest opportunity for improving the wellbeing of human populations. In this course you will learn information about developmental neuroscience, results of the ACE Study, and how to create conditions for resilience and healing. Considered a foundational training for those interested in trauma-informed care, participants will come away with strategies to operationalize this knowledge in their respective communities. Instructor(s) have been trained through the Dr. Rob Anda’s ACE Interface Master Trainer Education program licensed by UT Health. Ideal for the general public.
