This two-hour live webinar course will move from what Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are, toward providing insight into how to take action in building trauma responsive communities through relationships, and positive experiences that have the potential to address the impacts of ACEs. Learn about the principles of trauma informed approaches, and how to draw on capacities for creating positive experiences, building a robust sense of community and forging strong relationships through understanding the underlying neurobiology of the human social engagement system.

This course is grounded in solid research into the dynamics of ACEs and the impact of trauma and also shares experienced based strategies for addressing this impact with individuals, families, and communities.

After finishing this course, students should be able to:

  • Understand the neurobiology of the impact of ACEs and the need for trauma informed approaches that create positive experiences, build community and foster strong relationships.
  • Apply insights from the neurobiology of the human social engagement system to building healing relationships.
  • Integrate the practical implications of fostering a shift in cultural attitudes and the double continuum of health; reducing adversity and increasing positive experiences.
  • Know principles of trauma informed approaches that guide decision making in services impacting children and families including in the context of mental/behavioral health care; as well as in education, health services, law enforcement and other community services.
  • Action steps for reducing the impact of ACEs on individuals, families, and communities
