About the Summit
Over 300 attendees joined the 2016 Iowa ACEs Summit. The summit shared the findings in the latest Iowa ACEs report released July 2016 and moved beyond discussing what are ACEs to focus on how we can take informed action in response. Follow the discussion on social media under #ResilientIowa
Director James Redford’s powerful documentary,
Resilience, examines the impact of trauma during childhood and innovative community-led
responses. The hour-long film moves beyond
the Paper Tigers film to give a call to action.
Theresa Barila, co-founder of the Children’s Resilience Initiative in Walla Walla, Washington, will talk about her community's effort to build capacity within various partner agencies to have
a unified approach to responding to ACEs.
Interactive sessions and discussions will give you an opportunity to learn from emerging response strategies in Iowa and to develop your response to ACEs in your personal and professional life.
