38% of children* need you! Community ACEs Training 101
Presented by Brittany Ray, Transforming Rural Experience in Education (TREE)
Made possible by a Maine Community Foundation grant
The knowledge of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and how such experiences impact behavior and learning is key to creating trauma-informed, resilience-focused schools. Becoming trauma-informed is not simply a training but a true mindset shift which requires policy changes on many levels. TREE is committed to ensuring people learn more about ACEs and promotes working together to create environments that foster healing and resilience. This session is the starting point for principals, school committee members, elected officials, community groups, police departments, etc. interested in supporting trauma-informed school cultures. Participants will learn about ACEs and the corresponding policy changes most needed in our schools and communities in order for students to thrive.
Space is limited. Sign-up here or call 282-8280.
* Health Resources and Services Administration’s 2016 National Survey of Children’s Health shows at least 38% of children in every state have had at least one ACE.
