ACEs: What You Need to Know TODAY About the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study

The consequences of childhood trauma can be severe and life-long. We know that toxic stress damages a child’s developing brain. All too often we see intergenerational transmission, where adults with unresolved childhood trauma pass on its negative impact to their children.

Join us and discover solid research into what constitutes an adverse childhood experience (ACE) and measurable ways to track the effect of that trauma. There are clear and dramatic ways that ACEs harm people, not just during childhood, but well into adulthood. It has been said that ACEs cause much of chronic disease, most mental illness, and are at the root of most violence.

The costs are profound; physically, psychologically, and behaviorally, economically, and emotionally. Consequences can be profound in the areas of social, emotional, and cognitive impairment; adoption of high-risk behaviors; disease, disability, and social problems, and early death.

You will learn about the innovative approaches that organizations and communities are taking to address these issues.
