This workshop introduces the ACE study and other research to inform educational professionals of the impact early childhood adversity has on learning, health and relationships throughout the lifespan. Through a trauma informed frame, participants will gain an empathic perspective for viewing challenging behaviors that show up in schools and classrooms which make if difficult to connect with some children. By understanding the neuroscience of brain development, participants will begin to develop intentional interventions to help children gain access to their learning brains. Armed with this common language, school systems can build the protective factors that promote resilience for all children and profoundly improve the well-being of our society.
