The "History & Hope" training introduces the audience to the adverse childhood experiences study (ACEs), and addresses the question "Why are adverse childhood experiences so adverse, and what can we do about it?" Bringing together Alaska Native ancestral knowledge of trauma and resilience; the sciences of neurobiology, physiology, and epigenetics; data on social and economic stressors affecting Alaskan families; simple brain- body healing exercises; and promising practices in education and early childhood settings, this presentation provides an introduction to how trauma-informed, culturally-responsive approaches in healthcare and education can help shift our most pressing health and social problems.

The "History & Hope" training is provided through a partnership between the Alaska Resilience Initiative and the Child Welfare Academy.
