Exploring Trauma and Resiliency
The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study findings represent a paradigm shift in human understanding of the origins of physical, social, mental, and societal health and well-being. We now know that leading causes of disease and disability, learning and productivity problems, and early death have their roots in the cumulative neurodevelopmental impacts of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).
Peacemaker staff trained in the ACE Interface model facilitate sessions for schools, organizations and community groups that include practical resiliency-building strategies that are good for ALL!
This work is inspired by the Self-healing Community Model that "made visible changes that helped to instill a real sense of hope in communities that had given up on the prospect of a better world for their children." (RW Johnson Foundation)
