Greetings from Nashville!
For those who have taken a systems change approach (infusing the ACEs and trauma research into institutional policies & practices), what tools have you used? I'm specifically looking for resources that would help those who work in juvenile justice and correctional systems.
I'm familiar with the myriad organizational assessments. I'm on the hunt for specific program or curriculum model(s) that help staff at all levels incorporate the ACEs/trauma/brain science research into their respective practice. In other words, I don't need a curriculum to deliver info on ACEs and their impact; rather, I need resources on how these professionals can take the info they've already learned and put it into action to create holistic systems change.
Does such a thing exist?
So far, I've looked at Working for Kids as well as the Trust Based Relational Intervention. Any other ideas from the ACEsConnection hive?
Thanks so much!
