What happens in childhood is a powerful predictor of a population's physical and behavioral health, and social and workforce challenges. There is growing scientific information studying Neuroscience, Epigenetics, Adverse Childhood Experiences, and Resilience - what practitioners are calling N.E.A.R. Sciences
A new Speakers Bureau has been formed to support the spread of this information and help communities respond. N.E.A.R. Speakers Bureau trainings build a common language and understanding that can help any audience recognize the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences in the places where they live, work, gather, and play. Participants also will hear examples of how other communities have applied this emerging science to make a difference. Presentations are customized for each audience and can range in length from one to three hours.
The Cowlitz Community Network can assist with logistics and other support for these presentations. Please go to www.cowlitzcommunitynetwork.com to request a free presentation.
