Hello everyone,

I wanted to make sure you saw this webinar below - if you are unfamiliar with ACES or need a refresher, this may be a good place to go! It's next week and it's free. I'd suggest this topic to be particularly meaningful for our current circumstances.

Barring unforeseen technical difficulties :), I'll be hosting office hours tomorrow at noon<https://libguides.osl.state.or.us/coronavirus/youthsvcs>. As always, all are welcome.

Please join Emporia State University's School of Library and Information Management for this free webinar:

Understanding ACES: Adverse Childhood Experiences
Thursday, Aug. 27
12 p.m. Pacific

Registration required: https://emporiastate.zoom.us/j/98869715840
NOTE: SLIM webinars usually do not require registration, but by the policy of the ACEs organization we cannot record this session.

Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are stressful or traumatic events that happen in childhood. The CDC Division of Violence Prevention, in partnership with Kaiser Permanente, conducted a landmark study from 1995-1997 with more than 17,000 participants known as the ACE Study. What we know from the ACE Study and subsequent research is that children who face traumas such as abuse, neglect or witnessing domestic violence are much more likely to develop social, emotional and behavioral challenges. Research also demonstrates that traumas often follow children well into their adult lives. Adults who have experienced childhood trauma are more likely to develop difficulties with substance abuse, mental health, divorce, holding down a job, parenting, domestic violence and incarceration. Childhood trauma survivors also develop serious health issues such as heart disease, chronic lung diseases, diabetes, obesity and cancer. The Understanding ACEs webinar gives an overview of what ACEs are, the landmark study that found the long-term effects of ACEs, and how to recognize and combat the long-term effects of ACEs.
