2019 January Thinking Thursday- Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Impacting Your Organization
The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study is the most advanced longitudinal research to date linking childhood adversity to many types of negative health and social outcomes in adulthood including anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and other common chronic health conditions. Conducted by the Center for Disease Control, this groundbreaking study cuts across all demographic lines linking the emotional experiences of children to subsequent adult wellbeing across many dimensions. Across the nation, an estimated 25% of adults are impacted.
How do ACEs impact your employees, coworkers, and clients? Learning about ACEs and gaining a full understanding of the lifelong implications can be transformative for your leadership team in better understanding your workforce.
In this January installment of our Thinking Thursday seminars, Intermountain CEO Jim FitzGerald will provide an overview of the ACEs Study and describe the benefit of becoming a trauma-informed organization that supports those who are struggling.
