Understanding ACEs: Building Self-Healing Communities

Understanding ACEs: Building Self-Healing Communities

You are invited to attend this LHCC Region 9  Training Opportunity on July 17, 2019.  The training is FREE and Open to the public.

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) refers to a range of childhood experiences (abuse, neglect, and traumatic experiences), which leads to stress and can result in trauma and chronic stress responses. Multiple, chronic or persistent stress can impact a child’s developing brain and has been linked to high-risk behaviors, chronic health conditions, low life potential, negative health outcomes in adulthood such as smoking, diabetes, heart disease, and early death. Based on the CDC and Kaiser Permanente study, come learn how a child and/or adult’s ACE score impacts their overall health as well as the health of a community. This training will positively impact our daily interventions with clients, co-workers, and family.
This training will be an in-depth, lecture-style presentation introducing the neuroscience of early adversity, the ACE Study and community response to addressing ACEs. This presentation was developed by Dr. Robert Anda, a co-principal researcher of the ACE Study, and Laura Porter, the Director of ACE Partnerships in Washington State.

Baton Rouge-Regional Child Abuse & Neglect Prevention Town Hall Meeting

Baton Rouge-Regional Child Abuse & Neglect Prevention Town Hall Meeting

Prevention is the best hope for reducing child abuse and neglect and improving the lives of children and families. Strengthening families and preventing child abuse requires a shared commitment of individuals and organizations in  every community, particularly in the State of Louisiana. According to the Louisiana Child Death Review Report, from 2014-2016, 2,208 children died, and 717 of those deaths were due to injury. Between 2014-2016, Louisiana had the highest rate of mortality for children ages 1-14 in the United States. About one-third of infant and childhood deaths in Louisiana are due to injury and are potentially preventable.
Effective prevention efforts are critical to ensuring the immediate and long-term safety and well-being of children in Louisiana. Your voice in preparing our State Plan is vital! Within the Plan we will include recommendations and ideas shared by YOU our stakeholders and partners. Your suggestions will assist us in mapping out a plan to build our communities by connecting families with resources as we continue to support parenting education, home and hospital visitation programs, train volunteers and service providers and collaborate with community based service organizations to ensure the safety and well-being of our most valuable asset…..our children!

Data Sharing: How Can You Share Data to Improve Child Outcomes?

Data Sharing: How Can You Share Data to Improve Child Outcomes?

Lawmakers introduced federal and state privacy laws to protect individuals’ medical, legal, and educational records. However, to examine public health issues across communities and to provide integrated care plans for individuals across systems, we often need to share information to improve people’s lives. While laws prohibit data sharing to protect individuals, agencies can share information across sectors with either client permission and/or data use agreements. Understanding the legal, moral, and practical barriers to data sharing is essential to ensure we can share data when necessary. Denise Chrysler and Crystal Ward Allen will present the real-world challenges to data sharing and focus on practical solutions.

Join the TRANSFORM Research Center for conversations by national experts on the latest research in child maltreatment prevention. 
 
Transform (Translational Research that Adapts New Science FOR Maltreatment) is a national resource center that conducts research, disseminates discoveries, and builds on state-of-the-art research and practices to foster the next generation of interdisciplinary professionals committed to preventing and addressing child abuse and neglect.
 
Their sessions will run at 12:00 p.m. ET on the 4th Thursday of every month, from May through September, 2019.

Webinar To Discuss Mentoring for Sexually Exploited Youth

Webinar To Discuss Mentoring for Sexually Exploited Youth 

This webinar explores the high challenges faced by Commercially and Sexually Exploited Children (CSEC), and the value of positive mentoring relationships in helping young people resist and overcome these abuses. Our panel centers the voices and experiences of survivors and youth from vulnerable backgrounds, and also offers a provider perspective. We explore best practices for mentoring youth who are vulnerable to exploitation, including relationship-focused work, trauma-informed practice, and strengths-based and youth- and survivor-led programming. Woven into the discussion is a critical understanding that truly addressing the problem of youth exploitation in our society requires not only a commitment to assist young people to better adapt, but also to address the environmental causes of exploitation at both the micro and macro levels.
