This training covers the landmark Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Study, how ACEs and other trauma can impact health across the life course, and how organizations can utilize trauma-informed principles to build resilience and promote thriving across the lifespan in their communities and workplaces.

The course discusses the ACEs study, which highlights the link between childhood trauma and adverse health outcomes in adulthood, such as heart disease and cancer. Additionally, it will examine how trauma may manifest on many levels, including historically and structurally, and how this can impact the health of individuals and communities. These ideas are rooted in the “biology of adversity,” including neuroscience and epigenetics, which tells us why ACEs and trauma can be so powerful.

Participants then learn what they can do to promote resilience, recovery, and thriving individuals and communities within their work. They also discuss what socially-just, trauma-informed capacity building looks like, and methods they can develop to integrate these ideas with staff and coworkers and with the communities they serve.

The webinar is free, but registration is required.
