Networking: 8:00 AM to 8:30 AM
Presentation: 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM

Overview: The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study was the largest study completed that examined the health and social effects of adverse childhood experiences over the lifespan of participants. The ACE Study revealed how childhood experiences can determine the likelihood of the ten most common causes of death in the United States. Participants will:

  • Delve into what was learned from the ACE Study and the percentage of the population affected along with the correlation with high risk behavior. 
  • Understand the impact of untreated ACE on brain development and how this impairment is most commonly demonstrated. 
  • Discuss why untreated ACE constitute a public health crisis.
  • Explore the three stages of treatment for trauma.
  • Learn about trauma informed avoidance and de-escalation techniques to be used with agitated clients.
