“The child may not remember, but the body remembers.”
This documentary delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), a national movement to prevent Toxic Stress. Now
understood to be one of the leading causes of everything from heart disease and cancer to substance abuse and depression, extremely stressful experiences in childhood can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior.
A discussion on ACEs and the impact of toxic stress on our kids will follow with Certified ACEs trainer Katie Aiken of United Counseling Service.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information call Kate Aiken at (802) 442-5491 ext. 332.
