In this session we will take a look at the ACE Study (adverse childhood experiences), the effects of adverse experiences, and how we can build resiliency in individuals with high ACE scores. Relationships are vital resources in young people's development, and assets are built primarily though positive, healthy relationships. The Search Institute released a framework of the 40 Developmental Assets, which identifies a set of skills, experiences, relationships, and behaviors that enable young people to develop into successful and contributing adults. Data collected from Search Institute surveys of more than 4 million children and youth from all backgrounds and situations has consistently demonstrated that the more Developmental Assets young people acquire, the better their chances of succeeding in school and becoming happy, healthy, and contributing members of their communities and society.
During the current epidemic, most of us have been physically separated for several weeks due to social distancing. This has created the need for youth workers and caregivers to find new & creative ways to build assets with our youth. Join us as we discover ways to promote resiliency, optimism, relational connections in young people.
