Adverse Childhood Experiences
An in-person workshop describing the ACEs study and the impact on child and adult wellbeing.
About this Event


This training on the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study will aim to educate participants on the study and its findings as well as educate participants on how childhood experiences can adversely affect those in which they work. Finally, the training will seek to educate participants on resiliency, the antidote for ACEs, and ways to build resiliency in their clients to increase protective factors and decrease the negative outcomes in those with ACEs.

Location instructions: Once you have reached the training location, you will walk up the steps and go around to the back entrance to the room lined with windows. The speaker will be there earlier to make sure there is someone there in case there are any issues in finding the room. You will see a gym through the windows in the opposite building to the left - it is directly across from the gym.
