Understanding Adverse Childhood Experience - Building Self-Healing Communities

Resilience - The Biology of Stress & the Science of Hope

[Around Noon - You will break for lunch on your own]

This presentation on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) will educate the audience on how ACEs affect our population. The science and research shows that children who experience abuse, neglect and/or household dysfunction, collectively known as ACEs, may face a life of risky health and social behaviors, chronic health conditions, low life potential and even early death, without intervention.  The presentation also includes information on brain development, epigenetics, ACEs, potential interventions, and how to build resilience in the lives and communities.
