Building Strong Brains: Tennessee's ACE Initiative and The Role of Life Experiences in Shaping Brain Development.
Thursday, January 25, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. CT
The US has a long history of successfully addressing public health problems through multi-sector knowledge mobilization efforts and subsequent norms change. This training provides participants an overview of Tennessee’s Building Strong Brains campaign, a user and audience friendly example of a public-private, knowledge mobilization campaign that is engaging multiple sectors and ‘unusual suspects’ in child abuse prevention and mitigation. By integrating the science of early childhood brain development and the research behind the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) concepts, Tennessee has given child advocates, providers, nonprofit organizations and educators a clear and compelling storyline of child abuse as a pervasive public health problem in the US. History tells us that when science defines something as a public health problem, innovative, population level solutions follow.

Secondary trauma can take many forms, some of them quite visible and others more obscure. Even the person experiencing secondary trauma may not recognize the symptoms or identify them as something resulting from their work. How do we know when our staff members, our volunteers, or we personally are experiencing secondary trauma? This workshop will explore the phenomenon of secondary trauma and discus current strategies for mitigating the secondary post-traumatic stress response.
