Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Southeastern Summit 2017
Oct 19 – Oct 21 all-day

The objectives of this summit are to:

  • Integrate knowledge and experience of interprofessional individuals and groups, via small group discussions, to generate at least one collaborative ACE practice that links health, education, law and mental health settings within the Southeast region.
  • Engage diverse professionals in group discussions that will identify at least two interventions, sources of resiliency or protective processes that have improved the lives of individuals who have experienced ACEs.
  • Recognize that to ultimately impact ACEs within the Southeast region, two or more interprofessional groups need to reach beyond their traditional siloed boundaries and borders and work together collaboratively.
  • Analyze two National findings from the ACE study that have created new ways of interprofessional thinking, structuring of services, and the empowerment of families and their communities.
