ACES Training: Adverse Childhood Experiences

Feb 3, 2018 (10:00 AM) - Feb 3, 2018 (01:00 PM)
February, 2 2018

Description

How does trauma affect the brain physically and mentally? This meeting helps understand and recognize behavior that may be due to trauma.

On February 3rd from 10-1pm we will be having a training that is open to ALL parents, coaches, and board members.  It will also be open to the public, as we have reserved a room in the Kennewick Mid-Columbia Library.

Robin Henle, RN, BSN, is a Public Health Nurse from the Benton Franklin Health District and will be giving the training.  She has given this training for numerous schools in the Kennewick, Richland, and Pasco school districts.

ACEs are Adverse Childhood Experiences.  They can be in the form of neglect, abuse or household dysfunction.  They put children at risk and affect their physical and mental wellbeing.  With that being said trauma affects everyone differently and children are resilient.

ACEs are more common than you think, 62% of people living in the state of Washington have them according to the Ben Franklin Health Department.  This phenomenal training can help give everyone gain great insight and resources into how trauma effects the human brain and the lasting effects it can have on children as they grow into teens and young adults.

If you have questions text Coach Ashley at 509-438-8737.
