There is growing public attention and research on what communities already know about the impact of abuse and neglect that can repeat itself in cycles across generations of families confronting poverty and historical trauma. This full-day exploration of solutions and strengths will feature cultural exchange and dialogue, not just lectures. Examination of “adverse childhood experiences” (or early trauma) can give both individuals and communities new insights into their health disparities and negative outcomes. Such research as the ACE Study, brain development science, and what we know about resiliency can shift more thinking from blame to prevention. In Minnesota, the greatest disparities are experienced by American Indian and African-American communities. This gathering is meant to be a step along a positive pathway where communities realize their solutions and power.
