To prevent ACEs using a data-driven, cross-sector and systemic strategy, the book Anna, Age Eight: The data-driven prevention of childhood trauma and maltreatment will be most useful. It is available free-of-charge to download here: www.AnnaAgeEight.org

I would like to connect with anyone in this community, who is delivering Trauma-Informed Care to Adults and utilizing the ACE study as a platform. To this date, I have not found anyone who wants to connect with me. I am an LMHCA & CDP with a private practice who would like to provide workshops in the community. Please contact me if you are interested! Respectfully, Alfred awhite@seattlerecovery.org
