Training Description

Have you ever considered how we get from there to here? How do we go from a newborn with its extraordinary potential to the person lying on the street whom we overlook? The answer relates directly and in unexpected ways to difficult problems of social functioning, judicial institutionalization, addiction, medical practice, and public health. This training will look at The ACE Study and you will learn how researchers explored the origins of these problems, and how they came to see that the perceived problem is often someone’s attempted solution to problems about which they keep themselves unaware. The training focuses on the analysis and observations of several people who had experienced tremendous health and emotional challenges.
