      Adverse Childhood Events (ACEs) Training - Afternoon Session

      Studies have shown that adverse childhood experiences and traumatic events can have a lasting, negative impact on a person’s health and well-being. The accumulation of childhood adversity is often interconnected with issues of trauma, mental illness, substance abuse, homelessness and other social problems, calling for a comprehensive approach to assisting people experiencing multiple problems. A high ACE score is powerfully associated with later life health risks and social problems. Join us to learn more about ACEs and what you can do to prevent and/or support change at home and in our community.  Objectives: Increase awareness of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and impact on well-being. Explain the physiological effect of trauma on the brain. Improve knowledge on ACEs, Trauma, and Trauma-Informed Care. Enhance the community's ability to prevent and respond to trauma. Shearese Stapleton will lead the hour-long ACEs training. Attendees are encouraged to stay for the Community Resiliency Model training that will take place immediately after the ACEs training session.  Direct questions to projectrecast@cityofflint.com.
