Webinar: The Devastating Impact of ACEs
This webinar will be a life-changing training that will take the listener on a journey to exactly what trauma, toxic stress, and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) does to a person over time.
The presentation will go into depth on the research that has been done in the past years and the cutting-edge research that is currently being done. The speaker will briefly explain the importance of dealing with the past experiences in such a way that the present and future has the best potential for positive growth and success.
The presentation will also show the research of how the impact of toxic stress affects the development of the brain in children, the different physical and emotional effects on adults and how to best handle past traumas. Another interesting part of the presentation will be the research on how to best build resilience in children and adults to help overcome that trauma.
The presentation will also include the impact that the ACEs have on the health and mental well-being on adults later in life. The session will also place an importance on what is currently happening in the world today, in which the presenter calls, “The Perfect Storm” of stress and anxiety. This is vitally important to understand that developing a trauma-informed mindset is critical to help others deal with a world filled with stress. This will open up an understanding for the need for equity and understanding in quality care and treatment for all communities.
