Breakout Session: Mothering, Courage, and Resiliency in Women with Histories of Childhood Sexual Abuse & Changing the Outcome of ACE's

June 17, 2020 - 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. EDT

Mothering, Courage, and Resiliency in Women with Histories of Childhood Sexual Abuse
The workshop will examine the impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACES) and the risk factors that mothers who have experienced child sexual abuse had to overcome to protect their children from the abuse they experienced. The workshop will examine the challenges faced by this group of mothers. The workshop will focus on the protective factors in their lives of these mothers that help them to “defy the odds” and give their children something significantly different from what they experienced.

Changing the Outcome of ACE's: How Interpersonal Relationships, Play, and the Arts Build Resiliency
This presentation addresses the expansion of the adverse childhood experiences questionnaire to include social determinants of health. The presenter will discuss the importance of relationships embedded within play and art. The implications extend to public health policy and social reform as institutions evaluate the systemic health consequences of childhood trauma and search for solutions for building protective factors into the framework of systems to enhance child health and development.
