ACEs Response: Navigating the Trauma-Informed Network of Care
May 11 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
About this Event
A follow up to our first Network of Care session, “ACEs Response: Building a Roadmap toward Resilience”. This session provides an interactive opportunity for engaging in the change process toward building and navigating a trauma-informed network of care. Learn about the ACE study, the impact of toxic stress, and best practices in trauma informed care. We will provide practical tools for developing ACE-informed practices within an organizational setting, offer strategies for supporting patients through the screening and treatment process, and provide resources for tapping into your community’s network of care. If you are a Medi-Cal provider or work with children and teens in any capacity, we would love for you to join us!
Western Youth Services (WYS) received a grant from the Office of the California Surgeon General (CA-OSG) and the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to participate in the state’s ACEs Aware initiative. ACEs Aware is a first-of-its-kind effort to enable early detection and mitigate against the health and societal impacts of ACEs and toxic stress. It is led by Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, California Surgeon General, and Dr. Karen Mark, Medical Director for the California Department of Health Care Services. This program aims to cut ACEs and toxic stress in half in one generation by offering Medi-Cal providers training, screening tools, and clinical protocols to respond with trauma-informed care.
