*The Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACES) by Kaiser Permanente and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) illuminates a strong link between trauma and the overall health and behavior of a person. Trauma is a result of painful experience(s) and can create life-changing circumstances. This in turn can cause lasting adverse effects on an individual’s health, behavior and overall wellbeing. Most have experienced various levels of adversity which are all embedded within our behavior, our communication, and our overall ability to function, regulate, connect, and heal. Teaching sustainable, easy to use and fast acting tools to put alongside current practice is simply how we create environments which foster resiliency and teach to diminish trauma.
