Seminar Short DescThe Adverse Childhood Experiences, or ACEs Study, found that ACEs are common, nearly 2/3 or 64% of adults have at least one. Neuroscience has demonstrated exactly how the stress children face alters their brain during critical stages of development, their body, cells and even their DNA. This workshop will look at the science of early adversity and how it changes a person/child along with science based ways in which we can reverse these changes.
Seminar Full DescAdverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) include things like abuse, neglect and other potentially traumatic events that occur in the life of a child under the age of 18. The ACEs study provided compelling evidence that such events are the most potent risk factor for development of health, mental health and substance use problems. These negative health outcomes parallel the cumulative exposure of the developing brain to the stress response, with resulting impairment in multiple brain structures and functions. ACEs impact our schools, our classrooms and our communities every single day, in numerous ways. Participants of this workshop will learn about the ACEs research, related neuroscience, epigenetics and resilience.
