This program is free of charge and open to the public. Everyone is welcome to participate. This presentation will explore:
the prevalence and impact of trauma on children’s brain development;
the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACES) which first introduced us to the long-term impact that trauma can have on social, emotional and health outcomes;
what we must do to help children and families recover from trauma;
and what is behind many of the behaviors we see and how we can shift our perspective to serve children and families through the lens of trauma.
