On April 23rd, 2019 from 12:00pm-1:30pm PST the National Pediatric Practice Community on ACEs (NPPC), an initiative of the Center for Youth Wellness, will be hosting a webinar to support efforts to screen all children for adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and additional adversities. This webinar will summarize the findings of a state advisory group assigned to review tools and protocols for screening children for trauma, and provide an introduction to two tools the advisory group recommended.
Join us to learn about:
California’s journey towards adopting ACEs screening – Sara Marques, Center for Youth Wellness
The PEARLS screening tool — Drs. Jonathan Goldfinger, Center for Youth Wellness; Dayna Long, UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital; and Neeta Thakur, UCSF School of Medicine from the Bay Area Research Consortium on Toxic Stress (BARC)
Whole Child Assessment screening tool — Dr. Ariane Marie-Mitchell, Loma Linda University
Please note although the advisory group was convened in California, their findings are relevant to anyone serving children in other states.
