About the Event

Self-Healing Communities is the answer to the "now what?" that people often ask after learning about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Please join us to learn more about Self-Healing Communities of Greater Michiana, an initiative dedicated to helping all members of the greater South Bend community heal from intended and unintended traumas. This approach embraces NEAR Science, a combination of current scientific research in Neuroscience, Epigenetics, ACEs, and Resilience. This session will focus on the origin and mission of Self-Healing Communities of Greater Michiana, including opportunities to join in this community healing movement. The conversation will also highlight what is most exciting about this work: celebrating the ways our community has been resilient! If you are unfamiliar with ACEs, please consider signing up for an ACE Interface Training using this link

Please register by Monday, November 29 to attend this event.
