Keynote Presentation by: Ricky Robertson, M.Ed.
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and trauma are prevalent across class, race and gender. Forty-six percent of U.S. school children have experienced at least one adverse childhood experience and the prevalence of ACEs increases with age (Sacks, Murphey and Moore, 2014). ACEs and trauma have been shown to negatively impact students' behavior, academic performance and social/emotional development. Children can display symptoms of trauma, including externalizing behaviors; along with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, emotional outbursts, physical aggression, etc. During the keynote presentation, we will explore the prevalence and impact of ACEs and childhood trauma, deepen our understanding of vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue and develop practices to cultivate resilience for adults and youth.
