Adverse Childhood Experiences - Gering
This training is provided by Panhandle Partnership and is not a Right Turn sponsored training.
Cost is $20 to attend. Scholarships are available.
The devastating impact of childhood abuse, neglect and massively dysfunctional households can be life-long. And the growing prevalence of children impacted by adverse life experiences is absolutely remarkable.
The ground-breaking Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study was designed to answer two very simple questions:
1. How common are adverse childhood experiences in the general public?
2. How do they play out long-term?
The results of the study are shocking, and extremely relevant to therapy today.
Dr. Vincent Felitti, the co-principal investigator of the internationally recognized ACE Study and world-renowned childhood trauma expert, discusses the research, clinical implications and applications in practice today.
