Workshop Description An ACE score is a tally of different types of abuse, neglect, and other hallmarks of a rough childhood. According to the Adverse Childhood Experiences study, the rougher your childhood, the higher your score is likely to be and the higher your risk for later health problems. Five are personal- physical abuse, verbal abuse, sexual abuse, physical neglect, and emotional neglect. Five are related to other family members- a parent who is an alcoholic, a mother who is the victim of domestic violence, a family member in jail, a family member diagnosed with mental illness, and the disappearance of a parent through divorce, death, or abandonment. Each type of trauma counts as one point of the total score.

Conference objectives:

•  Understanding a traumatic experience.
•  Understanding how traumatic experiences affect brain development.
•  Understanding Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES).
•  Understanding what educators can expect from students who experience chronic stress and how do educators respond.
•  Understanding how we foster "Resilience" in our students.
