Cumberland Family Academy Session: Connections Matter: Social-Emotional Support for Students

  • The connections made in life profoundly impact one’s brain development and how we cope with Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES). Without positive and caring connections to buffer us in times of stress, we may not develop healthy coping skills. In children and adults, this can create mental, social-emotional, and behavioral problems. This is an evidence-based session with real-life scenarios as we explore ways to overcome the negative effects of trauma and stress.
