For those of you who didn’t make it to our last Community Health and Wellness Education Series, I’m attaching a copy of the presentation (see link below) given by George Scott of the NJ Traumatic Loss Coalition. Mr. Scott spoke on the subject of helping your kids with stress and anxiety and was a great presenter as always. The program had a special focus on positive aspects of parenting strategies and their effects on children; by contrast, the effects of unhealthy environments on childhood development are clearly illustrated in the slides on the ACES scale – as you will see, the impact of adverse childhood experiences has a direct correlation to physiological illness in adult years among other effects.
I hope you will review the presentation and learn some ways to make your kids’ experience more positive and to encourage resilience, and as a result help them to develop a more healthy and productive life.
As always, your comments or questions are welcome.
