The Father Factor:
Promoting Healing and Preventing Trauma

This session will help participants build on foundational knowledge of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) as a launching pad for a discussion about how to build resiliency in children, prevent ACEs, and promote healing through positive father involvement. Using a multidisciplinary approach, presenters will discuss risks that are a result of childhood trauma, and the exponential life-long impact that ACEs can have on human development and family formation. Presenters will discuss challenges and provide strategies for meeting the changing needs of today's complex families, and the demands of families on the horizon.

Presenters: Joanne Mooney, Minnesota Dept. of Human Services; Glen Palm, Minnesota Fathers & Families Network
