Childhood Trauma: The Roots that Impact Health

Childhood trauma, also known as ACES or Adverse Childhood Experiences affect children, adolescents, and all the way into adulthood. Emotional and physical trauma has been linked to risk taking behavior, substance use and abuse, addiction, and mental health challenges. During this program, learn from Debra Ruisard from the Center for Great Expectations and Tracey Heisler from CASA SHaW and Resilient Youth of Somerset County about ACES, Trauma Informed Care, and the links between trauma and risk taking behaviors.

This program is sponsored by the Bernards Township Health Department and Municipal Alliance, the Ridge High School Parent Teacher Organization, the William Annin Parent Teacher Organization, EmPOWER Somerset, the Safe Communities Coalition of Somerset and Hunterdon Counties, the Center for Great Expectations and Resilient Youth of Somerset County.
