Light refreshments, coffee, tea and water will be served.
What is the Power of Connection about?
Experience during development – whether nurturing or toxic – affects the well-being of children and adults. Our health, relationships, self-regulation, and on-the-job and school performance link to our childhood exposures and responses to adversity. Brain science explains the biologic pathways that make Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) so powerful. What’s predictable is preventable – this training will introduce a common language and understanding and develop capacity to continuously improve practice in ways that are informed by current brain science and resilience research findings. Our every-day actions matter for preventing ACEs and moderating their effects. Participants will learn about the progressive nature of adversity – and about promoting resilience and creating transformative and sustainable change.
