About the Film:
The impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences can increase negative outcomes for lifelong health and wellbeing. This film focuses on strategies developed by professionals working in pediatrics, education, and human services to mitigate these impacts by changing the way professionals and systems respond to children and adults who have experienced trauma. Attendees will have the opportunity to view the film followed by the opportunity to participate in a panel discussion about local efforts to bring trauma informed practice to systems in Minnesota.
