National Academies to Host ACEs-Related Workshop Next Week

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) will be hosting a two-day workshop entitled, The Neurocognitive and Psychosocial Impacts of Trauma, next week on July 31-August 1. The workshop will feature a significant focus on adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) by taking a systems-based approach to exploring ways in which the growing body of evidence related to ACEs can be integrated into trauma-informed approaches in community, education, health care, and juvenile justice settings. Perspectives to be featured during the event include survivors of trauma, scholars and researchers, and public health practitioners. A workshop overview is available here and an agenda is available here. The workshop will be held in Washington, D.C., and available via webcast; interested parties may register here.
