Description

The Beyond ACEs SUMMIT 2019 is designed to give providers and laypersons alike the opportunity to understand the basic language of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).  Persons familiar with the basic language and root causes of ACEs can further explore toxic stress and learn Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) practices within community development.  This year is historically significant because it marks the 400th anniversary of the arrival of enslaved Africans to Virginia.  It was also a time that marked significant trauma.   The information presented will explore the impact of race, culture and poverty both past and present through the lens of ACEs and Trauma.  Speakers sought to lead these discussions are asked to be transparent, compelling and thought provoking as they make the case for concern about the future among many citizens as well as leaders across public and private-serving sectors.  Trauma-Informed Community Development and resilience-building resources continues to resonate as a need within the region, which builds on work that started during the 2017 Beyond ACEs Summit.
