12:00 PM – 2:00 PM EST
Adverse Childhood Events (ACEs) can have a strong negative impact on the life course of an individual, increasing the risk of developing numerous problems from addiction to heart disease to cancer. Children who experience ACEs are also often misunderstood – seen as oppositional and defiant rather than scared and overwhelmed – and thus treated in ways that may compound the problems they face rather than resolve them.
Join Dr. Aaron Weiner for an overview of ACEs and their impact, including a deep understanding of their psychological and physiological underpinnings, as well as techniques you can use to help caregivers, children, and clients heal & flourish from their adverse childhood experiences.
- Discuss the processes through which ACEs and toxic stress cause negative psychological and physiological outcomes.
- Explain how trauma and ACEs create psychological processes that allow negative thought and feeling loops to perpetuate themselves and last indefinitely.
- Give 3 or more strategies for coaching caregivers to more effectively shape the behavior of children suffering from the impact of ACEs.
