Reducing Childhood Trauma as a Community

Washington state has been working on reducing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) for the last decade seeing some amazing results. Their model—the Self-Healing Communities Model—is now being implemented in Crow Wing County. Come learn more about this project and how it can benefit your community. Our Presenter – Tom Gonzalez grew up in a dysfunctional family and experienced many ACEs in his life. He now works with Bridges of Hope as co-project manager of the Self-Healing Communities Project in Crow Wing County. He is also working on a doctorate that involves research on ACEs. He has been married to Paula for almost thirty years and has two adult children: Thomas & Gabby.
