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.
Thursday, September 14, Noon-1:00pm
First Presbyterian Church, 393 East Main Street, Spartanburg, SC
Join Mental Health America of Spartanburg at their September Lunch & Learn when psychologist Peter Moore and private practice counselor Kathy Murphy will talk about “Invisible Disabilities”. Invisible because the outside observer may not be able to see them, e.g., PTSD or anxiety, or understand the difficulties that go along with them. There will be plenty of time for Q&A.
Note that we have a different site this month: the large private dining room on the lower level of the Family Life Center on the First Presbyterian Church campus. This building is located behind and a little west of our usual location, The William Arthur Center.
Registration is not necessary, parking is available and drinks will be provided should you like to bring your lunch. Please plan to come and “spread the word” with friends and family.
