How do Adverse Childhood Experiences Impact Brain Development in Youth and Adolescence

Event, Workshop, Continuing Education, Social Work CE, In-Person Workshop


with Victor Fornari, M.D.

CEs: 2
Cost: $65

Many of our adult client’s current emotional and physical challenges are derivative of early trauma identified as adverse childhood experiences. We now understand that adverse childhood experiences (ACES) impact brain development in youth and adolescence by creating epigenetic changes to our genes. It is therefore critical to be able to identify the consequences of these traumatic experiences as well as identify early intervention strategies to offset the potentially life-altering negative impact upon future physical and emotional health in adulthood.

Participants will be able to:

  1. Review the impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) on brain development
  2. Recognize the importance of early intervention to prevent the consequences of the impact of ACEs on the brain

New York State Office of the Professions (NYSED) regulations require that participants must be present for the entire approved educational activity in order to receive a certificate for continuing education credits. There is no accommodation in the State regulations for late arrival, late return from lunch or breaks, or early departure. According to NYSED, in order to award social work CEUs; “When you offer a multi-day or multi-part course/educational activity, the learner must complete all parts in order to earn the certificate for contact hours, in the same way that a student must complete a semester-long course to receive college credit. You may not award partial credit for a program, even a one-day program, if the learner does not complete all requirements at that time.”
