Society has long held the false narrative that some youth are just “bad kids” looking to cause trouble. You know this is not true. You understand there are often experiences during childhood that underlie these negative behaviors. They are typically referred to as “Adverse Childhood Experiences” or simply ACEs.
With many of the youth referred to Youth Intervention services because of negative behaviors, it is important that you fully understand ACEs. Findings from the ACE study represent a paradigm shift in understanding the origins of physical, social, mental, and also societal health and well-being.
By participating in this training, you will learn why some youth do what they do and how you can intervene to help them. Be the best you can be and learn about the ACEs study and its implications for your work.
Your Learning Objectives
- Learn general information about the ACEs Study
- Explore neurobiology that explains why ACEs impact people’s lives
- Discover what you can do to improve health and resiliency for the youth you serve
Sarah Hamlin, a certified ACE Interface Trainer and a member of the ACE Outreach Workgroup, brings to this presentation 17 years of experience in the early childhood field with the last four years working with families in need. Additionally, she is a certified Circle of Parents Leader and an endorsed facilitator for the Heather Forbes’ Beyond Consequences Parenting Curriculum, the Restorative Parenting Curriculum developed by Dave Mathews and the Nurturing Parenting Curriculum developed by Stephen Babolek.
Sarah’s understanding of the many factors that influence healthy development of youth is seen in her being a member of the Saint Cloud Area Thrive Coalition, the Special Education Advisory Council for the Elk River School District, Hunger Free Sherburne County, Big Lake Early Childhood Coalition, and the Inside Out Coalition.
A licensed social worker, Sarah is a graduate of St. Catherine University and currently completing a Master of Social Work from St. Catherine University-St. Thomas University.
