This session is an introduction to the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study and the physical, emotional, mental, social/behavioral and fiscal impact on individuals and human systems (communities and organizations). The presentation utilizes a social-ecological approach to explore multi-generational trauma and toxic stress and how to counter the effects. Beyond information sharing, the participatory workshop identifies the protective factors that help reduce the impact of experienced trauma and reduce the likelihood of exposure to new trauma, providing participants with actionable trauma-informed skills that they can use in their personal and professional lives.
