The Polizzi Clinic invites mental and physical health professionals to our January lunch lecture:
The ACE Study: Childhood Trauma, Health & Resiliency
The Adverse Childhood Event (ACE) study is the “biggest medical study you never knew about” (Jane Stevens).
This seminar will address the history, pertinent findings, and replication studies that are now reshaping the way we think about chronic mental and physical health problems AND the interplay of mental and physical illness. This seminar will also address how and why resiliency can trump ACEs.
