Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs): Activating High Leverage Prevention Opportunities Workshop

This workshop is focused on how intentional application of the science of human adaptation through experience can enhance our practice and help us to build flourishing communities. Presentation of neurodevelopment and epigenetic influences on development – including development of substance dependence and mental health challenges – will create a platform for exploring the ways that people with a history of adversity and trauma can become leaders of community change. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are a driver of many different kinds of health, social and productivity problems; and that is what makes ACEs such a powerful prevention opportunity. Presentations will bring together ancient wisdom with new scientific theories of complexity, quantum theory, and community psychology. Participants will learn how to notice and activate high-leverage trauma-informed prevention opportunities.

Presented By: Laura Porter, Co-Founder of ACE Interface, LLC.
