The Role of Childhood Experience in Raising Healthy, Thriving Children and Communities This three-hour, inter-active session will provide participants with an introduction to the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study including what ACEs can look like, sound like, and feel like for those impacted, as well as the potential impact of toxic stress upon healthy brain development. We will explore the prevalence of ACEs in Maine as well as examine Adverse Community Environments and their impact on children, families and communities. Additionally, through large and small group activities, we will learn strategies that help to build or promote resilience for healthy and thriving children, families and communities. Registration is Free - Must pre-register - Lunch can be purchased during registration
