This training/workshop will explore and define trauma and the impact of childhood trauma/adversity. The workshop will explore the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study and how the research originated as well as the finding of the study and the linkage between adversity in childhood and the range of vulnerabilities into adulthood to include physical health, behavioral health, academic success, and overall wellbeing. Research data also shows that, although ACEs cross all economic and racial categories, there is a higher prevalence of ACEs in communities of color, underrepresented communities and people with lower economic resources. Participants will explore possible connections between adversity compensatory behaviors to relieve the stress which create health vulnerabilities. Further, the training/workshop will explore strategies for prevention and healing.
