Free Community Education Seminar on the Impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences – November 28

What we experience shapes who we are. There is a growing body of evidence suggesting adverse experiences in childhood impact our physical, mental, and social health as adults. In this presentation, we will look at how these experiences impact us as individuals, parents and professionals. We will also look at how we can help our children and others to heal and grow from adversity.

This free event will take place on Wednesday, November 28, 2018 from 7:00 – 8:30 PM and is sponsored by Maine Township’s MaineStay Youth & Family Services, Chicago Behavioral Hospital, and The Harbour. It is appropriate for community members and professionals and includes 1.5 free CEUs for social workers, professional counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, and nurses. Check in will be from 6:30-7:00 PM. Advance registration is requested as seating for this event is limited.

Attendees are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items (canned fruit, tuna, and ravioli are especially needed) to donate to the Maine Township Food Pantry.
