Protecting Your Children: Advice from Child Molesters
Resilience After Trauma: An ACEs Mural Project
Alaska Children’s Trust is pleased to share Resilience After Trauma, a special collaborative art project coordinated under the direction of Mr. Steve Gordon, resulting in seven unique, storytelling murals by 20 different artists. Each mural reflects the powerful and personal stories of childhood trauma, resilience and healing.
ACEs are adverse childhood experiences that impair development of children’s brains and bodies so profoundly that the effects persist throughout a person’s life. Sustained or repeated exposure to severe adversity without supportive relationships is toxic for children. Developing resilience – strength to care for one’s self, healthy support, and recover from challenge – can buffer children from the impact of ACEs.
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month
