Webinar: An Upstream Approach to Preventing Adverse Childhood Experiences on Apr 5, 2018 11:00 AM EDT at:
Recognizing the deep and lasting negative impact that Adverse Childhood Experiences can have on life-time well-being, Educate Tomorrow’s Parents (ETP) has pioneered an upstream approach to preventing ACEs. ETP has developed an innovative high school curriculum that empowers teens to make healthier choices today, facilitating stronger beginnings for future children and families. The program also equips teens to break intergenerational cycles of abuse, poverty, and neglect. After 10 years of successful implementation and instructing over 7,000 teens, ETP is eager to share their methods, findings, and hopes for the future.
