Hunterdon, Mercer, Somerset, and Warren Counties Connecting Families Meeting--ACEs: What Happened to You
Caregivers will participate in activities and education based upon Dr. Perry and Oprah Winfrey's book, What Happened to You: Conversations on Trauma, Resilience, and Healing. Caregivers will participate in mindfulness activities to put into practice techniques that are intended to nourish self-empathy and understanding while also learning the science behind why this works to help end intergenerational Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Caregivers do not have to have read the book prior to attending.
Connecting Families meetings provide an opportunity for caregivers to share experiences, challenges, and successes in a safe and supportive environment. embrella's Connecting Families groups provide a welcoming community where you can share resource parenting tips and benefit from connecting with other caregivers who understand your situation.
