HOPE: Healthy Outcomes from Positive Experiences
April 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm PDTFree
This interactive session will describe how ACEs screening can be enhanced by also considering HOPE: Healthy Outcomes from Positive Childhood Experiences. Children’s brains develop in response to their experiences, both adverse and beneficial. Just as adverse childhood experiences can interfere with normal healthy development, positive childhood experiences can support lifelong health and well-being. The session will include survey data from California and beyond that show how positive experiences can make a difference, and give some insight into the current experiences of children and families. Including the identification, celebration, and enhancement of strengths and resilience supports anti-racist collaborative work. Finally, we will discuss the importance of creating opportunities for lasting memories of joy and happiness between parents, children, and their communities.
