Resilience Trumps ACEs


Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are significant childhood traumas that result in actual changes in brain development; changes that affect a child's cognitive, social, and mental health. Resilience is the ability to counter the risk factors that endanger our health. The Centers for Disease Control view ACEs as "one of, if not the leading determinant of the health and social well-being of our nation."


Within our 5 programs, SCAN works with many children and parents who have experienced adverse childhood experiences. The work done within our programs helps build resilience to overcome the lasting effects of this trauma. Research has shown that children who have social and emotional difficulties early in life are more likely to experience expulsion from school, drop out of school, be arrested, develop substance abuse problems and die at a younger age.


The Trauma Informed Community Network (TICN), which SCAN helped develop in 2011 and continues to lead, is comprised of representatives from various non-profit, for-profit and government agencies in the Greater Richmond area. They are dedicated to supporting and advocating for continuous trauma informed care for all children and families
