NTC is proud to host Dr. Vincent Felitti in a webinar presentation on his ACEs study, along with guest speaker Dr. Dimitri Topitzes.
There are experiences in childhood and adolescence which, while fairly common, are unspoken and hence unrecognized. Their effects play out decades later in adult life as some of our most difficult and costly public health problems whose distant causes are overwhelmingly unrecognized. We will depict and discuss this in detail. The subject has now caught the attention of 39 State Legislatures and of the World Health Organization. It may also be quite relevant to the work you do, in which case you can help in its expansion as well as having it help you meet your occupational goals
The presentation will describe frameworks that help translate insights from the ACE study into effective health, human, and social services. Trauma-informed care and more recently trauma-responsive practices have gained traction over the years, and the presenter will detail these approaches and provide specific examples of how to implement them in direct practice settings. A robust question and answer period will follow the presentation.
