How to use ACEsTooHigh Network - it's easy!

Think of this network as a Facebook just for the community of people who are implementing -- or thinking of implementing -- ACE concepts in international, national, state or local agencies, organizations, or communities.

It's incredible just how much activity is taking place across the country -- people are instituting a trauma-informed or trauma-sensitive approach in education, juvenile justice, mental health clinics, hospitals, child welfare, prisons, domestic violence programs, cities, towns and neighborhoods.

This network can help you achieve your goals faster by sharing resources, news about upcoming events, and information about best and worst practices.  

It's easy to start: Just sign up, fill out your profile, and go to "My Page" to start adding information about what you're doing.

If you're looking for others who are doing what you're doing or what you want to do, start a group and invite people to join. 

This ACEs Too High Network also links to the ACEsTooHigh.com news site, which is for the general public. Much of what is posted there ends up here, with the addition of details that are of more interest to this community. 

 If you've got a question, send me a message by putting a comment on my wall. I'll be glad to get on the phone with you to answer any questions.

Everyday Courage shows itself at Le Grand High School

Arrived at Le Grand High School on Friday April 18th at noon, bicycle in tow. The front office staff cordially greeted me and walked me over to Principal Martinez. After a warm handshake and short debrief he marched me over to show me the room where my bicycle and traveling gear would be stored over night.

Video “Change the First Five Years and You Change Everything”

The 4-minute video “Change the First Five Years and You Change Everything” just posted was done in 2009 but is excellent. It was shown as part of a webinar (Understanding Toxic Stress in Young Children) yesterday done by Health Child Care America, a program of the American Academy of Pediatrics. The presenter, Dipesh Navsaria, MPH, MSLIS, MD, was a great messenger for information on the topic of early brain and child development.  It will be posted soon on…
