ChildWise Institute Presents “The ACE Master Trainer Program”
According to Kids Count, a national data collection agency, Montana ranks 50th in the nation for child health…last place for 3 years in a row! Montana has also consistently ranked top 4 in the nation for teen suicide. What is being done about this? ChildWise Institute has taken on the mission to address this concern by educating the public on how they can elevate the well-being of Montana’s children.
To advance awareness and knowledge of the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study, ChildWise Institute will present the “ACE Master Trainer Program”, an in-depth training class on The ACE Study Oct. 23rd & 24th in Helena. This program is designed to provide extensive education about The ACE Study, a proven research linking health, social, and economic risks resulting from childhood adversity. Master Trainers will give presentations on the ACE study across Montana to professional and community audiences with the purpose of informing, inspiring, and motivating actions to avoid and reduce childhood adversity.
Master Trainer participants in this ChildWise program were hand-selected based on an application process and qualifying criteria. Leading the training will be: Dr. Robert Anda, Co-principal Investigator of The ACE Study; Laura Porter a Co-Founder with Dr. Anda of ACE Interface, LLC; and Karina A. Forrest-Perkins the President and Chief Executive Officer for Prevent Child Abuse Minnesota and Minnesota Communities Caring for Children.
