The cumulative effect of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) has a lifelong impact on children. As the number of ACEs increases, there is a greater likelihood of negative well-being outcomes such as obesity, depression, and other chronic conditions throughout life.Based on research by the Search Institute, the 40 Developmental Assets® have been identified as a series of positive experiences and qualities that help young people develop and thrive. The Developmental Assets® represent the relationships, opportunities and personal qualities that young people need to make positive choices, avoid risks and become caring, responsible adults.Join us for this presentation where we will:
• discuss the building blocks of healthy development
• learn about the external and internal Assets®
• identify how to begin using the Assets® to help youth and families address ACEs
• create a plan to support continued growth by building resilience.
