Understanding Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).
Current research shows a high percentage of individuals are exposed to trauma and toxic stress. Trauma can undermine a person's ability to learn, form relationships and function in society.
People impacted by trauma are much more likely to:
- Experience serious health issues
- Attempt Suicide
- Experience Depression
- Become an alcoholic
- Have serious job problems
That which can be predicted can be prevented! When we are aware of the influence of ACEs on brain development and functioning, 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.
No prerequisite training or knowledge required
