A Community Approach to Reducing the Occurrence and Impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)

For a copy of Bill’s PowerPoint presentation, click here.
Research has overwhelmingly demonstrated the connection between early life experiences and behavioral, health, and socio-economic outcomes in adulthood. This community conversation was led by Bill Brown and over 60 people attended. Bill helped us:
  • Examine the process linking experiences to physiological changes in the body;
  • Understand how these physiological changes influence health and wellness;
  • Discuss practical strategies for addressing some symptoms related to chronic toxic stress.

billbrownBill Brown is a Vermont-based counselor and an owner at Confluence Behavioral Health in Thetford VT. He holds a master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling with 13 years of experience in the field. His professional interests include the impact stress and emotional turmoil have on identity formation and development, the intersection of early childhood experiences and lifelong health, and the role families and communities play in wellness.

This event was sponsored by TLC Family Resource Center and Turning Points Network.
