Idaho Public Television is excited to partner with Idaho Children’s Trust Fund, Optum Idaho and Idaho Resilience Project to bring teachers, counselors, and other practitioners a three-part virtual professional development series centered around our documentary Resilience: Hope Lives Here.
The hourlong film investigates Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), which include abuse, neglect, divorce and other childhood traumas. Research shows that left unresolved or untreated, these experiences can lead to health conditions in adulthood — such as high blood pressure, diabetes and depression. Being a trauma-informed teacher or practitioner is critical because Idaho has the fifth-highest rate in the nation for children who have experienced three or more ACEs.
All of the webinars will be available to teachers and practitioners at no cost and will be available for credit (additional fee will apply). Please join us as we learn how to conquer ACEs and be more trauma-informed.
