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 experience and learn as we:
- Discuss ACEs and how developmental relationships support resiliency.
- Identify internal Assets and how to connect youth with external Assets in the community.
- Creating future opportunities to connect youth and families with the 40 Developmental Assts framework.
