HOPE Conquers ACEs Trainings
Idaho Children’s Trust Fund has launched a new HOPE conquers ACES (Adverse Childhood Experiences) initiative to train professionals in organizations and institutions that work directly with families on brain development, trauma, ACES and various other topics.
HOPE stands for “Healthy Outcomes from Positive Experiences” – a concept introduced out of research by Robert Sege et al (https://www.cssp.org/publications/documents/Balancing-ACEs-with-HOPE-FINAL.pdf) that discusses the powerful impact of positive experiences to heal and mitigate childhood trauma.
We now have trainers all over the state and below you will find a list of the individual trainings that we offer.
