National ACEs Summit Presentations

A revolution is under way, a ground-shift in the way we think about health and illness, human suffering and strength. It is a revolution with the potential to reshape physical and mental health care practices, schools, social services, juvenile justice systems, communities, families and individual lives. That was the passionate consensus of the First National Summit on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), co-hosted by ISF and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation in Philadelphia May 2013. You can view video of the keynote discussions and panel discussions and download copies of the keynote speakers’ and panelists’ power point presentations.
