Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)
Their effects last long past childhood, and their impact reaches much further than an individual child.
Join us on Wednesday, January 23, when Adverse Childhood Experiences trainer (ACES), Susan Beaulieu, will:
• share data from the ACES study,
• consider the science and impact of trauma on the developing brain,
• examine the role of epigenetics on transmitting trauma across generations, and
• consider basic resilience strategies at the individual, relational and collective levels.
There will be opportunities to reflect on how this information can inform the healthcare system.
Susan is a mother of 4, member of the Red Lake Nation, a Bush Fellow focusing on healing and resilience, and the former Director of Tribal Projects for Minnesota Communities Caring for Children (MCCC). While at MCCC, she became an ACE Interface Master Trainer and designed the Tribal N.E.A.R. Sciences and Community Wisdom Project to bring the ACE Interface curriculum to tribal communities throughout Minnesota.
