Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE)

The impact of early childhood experiences, positive or negative, on individuals throughout the course of their lifetime is significant.  These events also directly correlate to the risk and resiliency factors of those who experience them.  Unfortunately, many of those we serve have experienced a disproportionate number of adverse childhood experiences.  Some of these experiences may involve a general lack of support or a nurturing environment; others, however, may cross over into the realm of trauma. This session will emphasize not only our mandate to “do no harm” in working with those who have previously been wounded but also will focus on ways to help reestablish a sense of empowerment to those who may have come to feel disempowered and who are at increased risk for negative life experiences.
