Arkansas Adverse Childhood Experiences and Resilience Summit Provider Symposium

From 8:00 am until 3:45 pm

At Pulaski Heights Methodist Church

Join us for the 2019 Arkansas Adverse Childhood Experiences and Resilience Summit Provider Symposium

Saturday, Sept. 28 

Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church
Little Rock, AR

Cost - $125

Registration - 7:30 a.m.
Symposium - 8 a.m. - 3:45 p.m.

Social science and medical science have come together to recognize and address adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). What we have learned about ACEs over the last several decades can help us better understand our patients and why they sometimes struggle to get better. 

Shifting from the concept of “What is wrong with you?” to “What happened to you?” when approaching the care of our patients helps us address the trauma of the past and prevent further trauma in the present and future. 

This symposium will give you a better understanding of ACEs and its impact on mental and physical health, its relationship to the opioid crisis, innovative ways to identify and address ACEs, and inspire you on the power of positive thinking. 

Space is limited, so register today!
