Healthy Babies, Healthy Children, Healthy Life: A Symposium on Demand 

Virtual, On-Demand Workshop

Did you know that trauma can leave a chemical mark on a person’s genes, which can then be passed down to future generations?

Have you ever heard of Adverse Babyhood Experiences (ABEs)—which are distinct from Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)? Do you wonder how healing, prevention, and building resiliency can mitigate trauma? Then this symposium is for you!

In an exclusive partnership with Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition of Palm Beach County and Center for Child Counseling, we are honored to host presentations from distinguished mental health professionals focusing on babies, children, and families.

Participants will learn about:

  • Epigenetics and the intergenerational transmission of ACEs
  • Opportunities to prevent, repair and heal the effects of Adverse Babyhood Experiences (ABEs)
  • The impact of Positive and Adverse Childhood Experiences (PACEs) on developing brains, resilience, and lifelong health

Cost: Access to Full Symposium (3 Workshops) $60 (including 5 CEUs)

Each Workshop is $30 (Including CEUs)

Non CE credit workshop is $15
