Abuse, neglect, exposure to violence, poverty and other adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) have profound health, social and emotional consequences for individuals across the lifespan. Research indicates that ACEs are common across cultures and socioeconomic strata, and yet few health and human services providers graduate from training programs with the competencies they need to address the impact of trauma and toxic stress.
Children’s Crisis Treatment Center, Philadelphia University, and the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey invite post-secondary leaders and faculty to join in the discussion regarding needed changes in professional training curricula that prepares a trauma-informed workforce. Practical strategies and tools will be highlighted.
