Protective Factors, ACEs, HOPE, and Resilience
Presenter: Cailin O’Connor, Senior Associate, Center for the Study of Social Policy
Description: In recent years there has been great interest in the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and how they can affect adult health and well-being. Many of us who work with children and families are eager to go beyond understanding the impact of ACEs to thinking about how our work can prevent ACEs from occurring, buffer children from negative effects of adversity they do experience, and support families so that they can thrive despite any challenges they may face. Join this webinar to learn about an emerging body of research that illuminates the role of positive childhood experiences and family protective factors in improving outcomes throughout the lifespan, and how all of this can guide us to better support children and families.
