Who Should Attend: Child care providers, social workers, psychologists, educators, parents/caregivers, law enforcement, policy makers, and anyone with children in their lives.
Why You Should Attend: The topic of resilience in young people has been addressed by professionals for decades, all trying to understand why traumatic experiences effect everyone so differently. Today, the topic has never been more relevant. As we continue to deal with the unimaginable impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, helping young people recover from the stress of these difficult times is critical to their future success. In order to do that, we must understand the science of resilience.
Presentations and breakout sessions will address Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and provide strategies to protect children from toxic stress.
This is a professional development/training opportunity.
Participants will receive a certificate for 3 hours of training in the subject areas of: ACES & Child Development
