Description: Nurses are ideally positioned to provide education and support to individuals who have been affected by Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), regardless of their age or circumstances. The focus of this program will be understanding ACEs and their correlation to risk behaviors such as smoking, eating disorders, and alcohol and substance abuse, all of which can lead to significant health consequences. Current research on building resilience will be discussed, as this is showing promise and may help deter some of the possible negative behaviors for persons who have been affected by ACEs.
