Latest from the League
Last night, the League heard from Dr. Jennifer Parker and Ms. Stacey Olson about the Child Protection Training Center at USC Upstate's The George. They shared the negative impact that Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) have on individuals during childhood and throughout adulthood. We also learned that engaged, caring people can moderate or even reverse these negative outcomes. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! The research on ACEs has resulted in evidence-based techniques and training. Learn more about ACEs and USC Upstate's programs here. The Center is one of only four in the country! Some training is open to non-students and there's a degree program if you want to go even deeper.
Join us at the Child Protection Training Center to learn about adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and about the Training Center. You will hear a brief explanation of ACEs and their impact on child development and lifelong health along with an experiential exercise in a Mock ACE Scenario. Dr. Jennifer Parker, Director of USC Upstate's Center for Childhood Advocacy Studies, and Stacey Olson, Training Coordinator at The Child Protection Training Center, will present the program.
This event is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, but it does have a maximum attendance capacity, so please RESERVE YOUR PLACE for free through EventBrite or our Facebook event.
