Central Ohio TIC Collaborative ACES Training
Participants will learn how childhood and life experiences, including neglect and traumatic stress, change the brain and therefore the physical and mental health of an individual.  Ways to assess adverse childhood experiences and resilience will be introduced.  Attendees will enhance their ability to plan supports and services that are informed by a clearer understanding of "What has happened to you?" and "What have you done to survive?" rather than "What is wrong with you?"
