Childhood Adversity & The Healing Power Of Community
Thu, September 19, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
A talk with David McCorkle & Beatriz Vides, Founders, Center For Trauma Resilient Communities
In our next Conversations That Matter, we will present an overview of one of the largest public health investigations undertaken regarding the effects of stress and trauma and the devastating impact on childhood development and adult health outcomes.
The good news is that there are actions that we can take as a Community to mitigate and protect children from the impact of ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences). We will explore the factors involved in creating Resilient Communities and give examples of our work in Churches, Schools, Foster Care and other health care services. Our presentation will include film clips and group reflection.
