ACT Raising Safe Kids
Event Series (See All)
May 18 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
The ACT program was developed by the American Psychological Association (APA) and is coordinated by the Children, Youth & Families Portfolio. The program is based on research showing that:
- The early years are a critical time in development when children are learning basic skills that have long-term effects on their lives.
- Exposure to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), such as maltreatment, can have serious and long-standing impacts on brain development, emotional, cognitive, behavioral development and on health.
- Parents and caregivers are teachers, protectors and advocates for their children.
