We don’t know how many Native American women are missing in S.D. That’s about to change. (argusleader.com)

A new state law beginning July 1, which received unanimous support in the South Dakota House and Senate, is the first step in understanding the depth of the missing and murdered indigenous women issue in the state and begin to address it, supporters say. The law will require the state Division of Criminal Investigation to collect data on missing and murdered indigenous people, and create procedures and training for investigating cases involving women and children. The state can't fix a...

ACEs and Resiliency Fellows... bringing NEAR Science to SD communities

Tanya Fritz ·
Twenty-six individuals from multiple sectors across the state were selected to participate in a training and learning community around building self-healing communities. Participants spent two days with Dr. Robert Anda, Laura Porter, and Kathy Adams learning about the impacts of trauma, the ACE study, and how to support positive change within a community. The energy in the room was palpable. Over the course of two days, not only did the group gain knowledge, but a community was formed. So...

Eradicating the roots of childhood trauma [indianapolisrecorder.com]

Alicia Doktor ·
On the east side of Indianapolis in late March, a barrage of bullets sprayed through a home, killing 1-year-old Malaysia Robson as she slept on the couch. It was a drive-by shooting in the middle of the night by two men in their late 20s. It’s the kind of violence that can shake a community, leaving its distraught members wondering how much more they can take. Community violence — and other forms of trauma — are especially harmful for children. They’re called adverse childhood experiences...

"Faces of ACEs: The Lifelong Impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences" Conference 2019

Laura Pinhey ·
Friday, April 12, 2019 marked an exciting, auspicious, and perhaps pivotal day in the history of Monroe County, Indiana. That’s a lot of adjectives—and pressure—to pile onto just another glorious spring day in Bloomington. But I think many folks who virtually congregate on a site that supports communities implementing trauma-informed and resilience-building practices grounded in ACEs science would agree that a county’s first-ever ACEs conference deserves a little ballyhoo. But this ACEs...

But that lunch meeting changed everything. Karen Clemmer “Jane helped us see a bigger world,” says Clemmer. “She came with a much wider lens. She didn’t look only at Sonoma County, she...

Ring in 2021 with a Word of the Year

Cassie Nagel ·
Happy 2021 to our SD ACEs Community! Like every year, 2020 was full of ups and downs but unlike prior years 2020 will certainly be defined by the seemingly unrelenting procession of major national stressors including the death of George Floyd at the hands of police in Minneapolis, the COVID 19 Pandemic, an unprecedented divisiveness in politics. There was so much collective trauma in 2020 that the existence of MURDER HORNETS is a forgotten footnote – Yikes! I think it is safe to say we were...

Children Exposed to Trauma to be "Handled with Care" by School Personnel (sdcoe.net)

When children encounter police because they were a witness to violence or a traumatic event, they can sometimes show up to school the next few days feeling upset, setting off a cycle of poor school performance or acting out, whether in school in person or virtually. Unless a teacher knows the student experienced recent trauma, the child could end up in trouble instead of receiving support. The District Attorney's Office, the San Diego County Office of Education, local law enforcement, and...

How Can I Tell if a Child is Being Abused or Neglected?

Tifanie Petro ·
What are the signs of child abuse? It can be difficult to know if a child is being harmed. If we see an adult strike a child, for example, we can easily identify abuse. More often, however, the signs are less obvious.
