Recent research on brain development and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) has shown strong correlations between how children are treated in their early years and their well being as adults. The ACE study links the maltreatment of children to poor physical and mental health, as well as social-emotional problems in adulthood including: mental illness, suicide attempts, substance abuse, smoking, heart disease, incarceration, unintended pregnancy and workplace problems.

The ACE Interface trainers are Susan Beaulieu and Jamie Lee.

One clock hour and a certificate of attendance will be available.
