The ACE Study has demonstrated the link between childhood adversity and poor health outcomes later in life. The natural response of the brain to survive this adversity wires children’s brains in such a way that learning, social engagement, and well-being can be jeopardized. Resilience is the ability to offset the negative life factors that challenge one’s health and well-being, including ACEs. This training helps the participants understand the concepts of resiliency, simple brain science, the impact of ACEs on the and developing brain as well as ways in which Resilience can be built as a protective factor.
Trainers: Dana Gracie and Walter Johnson
