That which can be predicted can be prevented! When we are aware of the influence of adverse childhood experiences on brain development and functioning, we are more likely to interact in appropriate and helpful ways. We are then more likely to be able to help interrupt cycles of trauma and promote the health and success of individuals, organizations and communities. This 3 hour workshop is designed for any community member interested in learning about ACEs.
In this workshop, participants will:
Discuss the key findings of the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study.
Learn the long-lasting implications of historical trauma on individual and family well-being.
Learn the effects of toxic stress and adverse experiences on brain and nervous system development.
Learn how to interact and support people who have experienced ACEs in ways that build and strengthen their resiliency.
Are you interested in being more effective in listening to and speaking with people who have a much different perspective from yours? Facilitator Allan Rohlfs will help explore how to respond to strongly divergent views in a way that fosters dialog. For an informational poster click here.
