Why should I take this class?
The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study exposed one of the most important public health crises of our time, perhaps of all time. ACEs affect people from birth through their lifespan. Knowledge from the ACE Study has caused a paradigm shift in our understanding of the origins of physical, social, mental, and societal health and well-being.
During this 120-minute virtual class, you will learn:
- About ACEs and toxic stress.
- How trauma impacts the brain; both physically and psychologically.
- The role of ACEs in causing disease, learning disabilities, and early death.
- The importance of resilience and competent relationships
To access the online class, you will need:
A smartphone, tablet, desktop or laptop computer equipped with speakers and an internet connection.
Registration will be confirmed via email, including course log-in instructions for Zoom.
