Positive & Adverse Experiences of Childhood: Healing is Possible!
Jane Ellen Stevens, founder and publisher of ACES Connection will discuss Positive and Adverse Experiences of Childhood (PACES) and how these experiences have not only shaped our thinking but our biology. She states, “The path our lives take depends mostly on the positive and adverse childhood experiences we have between conception and about age 18.” She will help us understand how PACES are crucial to humans, because they are at the root of disease, violence, being a victim of violence, mental illness, substance abuse, cruelty, anger, depression, anxiety, a belief in a dangerous world, mob violence and rage. The good news is people can heal and do remarkable things: Schools that integrate practices based on ACEs science are able to eliminate suspensions and expulsions. Suicide attempts by youth drop 98%. Recidivism rates by graduates of batterer intervention courses drop from 60% to 1%. A year after families participate in Safe Babies Courts, 99% of children suffer no further abuse.
