This free 2-hour training, “History and Hope: Adverse Childhood Experiences, Resilience, and Trauma-Informed Education,” is being provided by Alaska Resilience Initiative to AYDC members and partners. The final hour will seek your feedback as practitioners on this pilot curriculum.
Please RSVP below to guarantee a spot.
Participants will walk away from it with a better understanding of adverse childhood experiences, trauma, and resilience, and how to apply this understanding and the principles of trauma-informed, culturally-responsive care in a healthcare setting. This is a new pilot phase for the curriculum, where collecting your feedback is vitally important for helping shape the way we teach and the way we train trainers to deliver this curriculum.
The curriculum will include:
– research on the adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) study
– framing of ACEs and other sources of toxic stress on children and families as an educational and health issue
– suggestions and ideas for what we can do about ACEs
– strategies to adapt your youth work to be trauma-informed, culturally-responsive, and equity-focused
– trauma-informed language.
