Facts, Not Fate: Overcoming Adverse Experiences
Rachael Ross, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with the Vine School Health Center joins Bruce this episode to continue the discussion on trauma and its impact on both children and adults. Bruce and Rachael explore how Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) impact a person over their life span and can shape their ability to attach, engage and interact with others. In this video, Rachel shares, in lay person’s language, about the basic structure of the brain and how the brain processes adverse experiences. Her description grants a better understanding of how adverse experiences can impact a person struggling to meet their basic needs and how this informs how VMC engages them.
