Dr. Colleen Bridger will present “Ten Things to Know about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s) and how these can shape your emotional and physical life at Las Palapas restaurant on 410 and Evers on August 2, 2018 at 7 pm.
The early years of life matter because the basic architecture of the human brain is constructed through an ongoing process that begins before birth and continues into adulthood. Early experiences literally shape how the brain gets built, establishing either a sturdy or a fragile foundation for all of the development and behavior that follows. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) harm the developing brains and bodies of young children and lead to poor mental and physical health across the lifespan. Preventing and mitigating these experiences benefit all by reducing crime, violence, substance abuse, unhealthy behavior and physical disease.
