Helping children work through adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) is difficult but important work because they can have lifelong effects on mental, physical, and relationship health. This workshop provides a deeper understanding of trauma's effects on a child's brain and teaches practical strategies for supporting children and their caregivers. You will discover how to identify ACEs, recognize their signs and symptoms, and learn preventative strategies for counteracting their negative effects. This workshop explores common ACEs, attachment theory, and strategies for supporting children and their caregivers. Join us and equip yourself with the tools you need to make a positive impact on the lives of children and families affected by ACEs.
