WINTER COE FORUM - UNDERSTANDING ADVERSE CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCES (ACEs)
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 19

ACEs are the root cause of many serious academic, social and behavioral problems that may have the potential to prevent a child from receiving the full benefits of education. Experiences of poverty, discrimination and community violence can impair the development of the growing brain and body. (from The Illinois ACEs Response Collaborative)

Our winter forum will help students develop a deeper understanding of ACEs and its implications for their work as future teachers and counselors. We have a panel of experts in the field:

  • Dr. Audrey Stillerman, MD, Medical Director, UIC Office of Community Engagement, School Health Centers: Co-Founder, Center for Collaborative Study of Trauma, Health Equity and Neurobiology
  • Kristine Argue-Mason, Instructional Resource and Professional Development Director for the Illinois Education Association; Facilitator, trauma-care training for teachers.
  • Loren Williams, Licensed Professional Counselor, former trauma counselor for Chicago schools with Metropolitan Family Services, Academy Urban School Leadership.
