Over 20 years ago two medical doctors joined by Centers for Disease Control and Kaiser Permanente, conducted a controversial study with over 17,000 residents of San Diego. Their research has become well-known as the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) study. In this session we will watch the one-hour documentary Resilience, and learn how ACEs contribute to toxic stress, negatively affecting children’s brain development and impact behavior and long-term health outcomes. Fortunately, experts continue to prove, what’s predictable is preventable. Discussion will focus on what it means to be trauma informed, how resilience is built, and how this information will transform how we meet the social and emotional needs of our students today.
