Many health professionals—including nurses, substance abuse providers, and mental health professionals—do not have a clear understanding of the impact of adverse childhood events (ACEs), how to mitigate the risks by building up protective factors, or how to explain to their clients how toxic stress in childhood has had a sustained impact on their physical and behavioral health. Together we will view the documentary Resilience, discuss social determinants of health (both risk and protective factors), review tools to screen for social determinants of health (including ACES, benevolent childhood events, and adult resilience); and explore their role within a two generational approach to supporting adults who experienced ACES and the children they will be/are raising using the Community Resiliency Model.
