The race conference, as we call it, is fundamentally designed to examine systems of power and privilege in the United States, especially the ways in which they impact communities of color. We also identify specific goals and strategies that promote democratic, yet radically transformative, social, economic and political structures…Our project is not simply about identifying and examining problems, but especially proposing actionable recommendations for addressing twenty-first century challenges.

    Description:

    Increasingly, we are beginning to understand the complex and prevalent effects of trauma on our population, in both children and adults. The examination of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) through the ACE Study is unique because it provides the potential to understand how multiple forms of childhood stressors can affect many important public health problems throughout an individual lifetime. ACEs can affect individuals, organizations, and communities across both public and private domains, in clinical, educational, and law enforcement settings. Understanding ACE effects can help us as professionals and individuals begin to work around a common goal of preventing the accumulation of ACEs and moderating their effects. In this workshop, you will learn about the ACE Study and the impact on oneself and the community. You will discuss the implications that exposure to trauma in childhood can have on your health. In addition, you will learn about the important connections between neurobiology, epigenetics, ACEs, and resilience.
