‘Adverse Childhood Experiences’ training available

University faculty and staff are invited to a training session this month on providing support and healing for college students who have undergone adverse childhood experiences.

The training session is from 2 to 4 p.m., May 24, in the Student Health Services Auditorium. The session is also open to students and the community.

Matt Buckman, a licensed clinical psychologist, will provide an overview of the research on ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) and the impact these experiences have on the neurological and physiological system, health, and behavioral health of young adults. Buckman will describe the most effective elements of trauma-focused treatments and reinforce concrete strategies to provide support and healing for college students.
