Child Abuse Awareness & Prevention (WEBINAR)

Monday, May 1st, 2017, 6 PM – 7 PM

One in four girls and one in six boys experience some form of sexual abuse or exploitation before the age of 18. While these numbers may be staggering, we know that we can begin to address child maltreatment with appropriate prevention and awareness. Come join us as we define child abuse and neglect, recognize its signs and symptoms, explore its emotional and developmental impact on children and gain tools for appropriately recognizing and responding to the issue. This webinar will help empower adults to better understand and respond to child abuse and neglect. Webinar in conjunction with Mental Health Association of Maryland’s Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week. 1 CEU.  Register here.

Raising of America Episode 5: “DNA is Not Destiny” Screening & Discussion 
Tuesday, May 9th, 2017, 5:30 – 7 PM

Discoveries in the exciting new field of epigenetics suggest that fetal and early child environments literally become part of us. We can’t change our genes, but we can change the environments which modify our DNA chemical marks, or epigenomes. “DNA is Not Destiny” considers the social and political implications of these discoveries. Join us as we discuss how improved social conditions can provide the biological foundation for healthier, more resilient and successful lives. Discussion to follow. 1.5 CEUs (Category II only).

Childhood Trauma & Its Impact on Children & Families: A Day of Training for Jewish Youth Serving Professionals and Organizations

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017, 9 AM – 4:30 PM
University of Baltimore
11 West Mount Royal Avenue
Baltimore, MD 21201

Research shows that 1 in 8 children will be a victim of abuse, neglect, or some other maltreatment by age 18. Exposure to trauma and maltreatment has life-long mental, physical, and emotional consequences. As professionals and organizations who work with children, how we recognize and respond to children and families dealing with trauma not only impacts their lives, but also will impact the entire Jewish Community for generations. Join Baltimore Child Abuse Center and Haruv USA for a day of education on childhood trauma, its lifelong impact, and how we can better help and support children and families in the Jewish community through trauma and crisis. Training registration is FREE and Kosher lunch will be provided. See attached flyer for additional details. Register here.

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs): Impact on Future Health & Social Outcomes 
Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017, 1 PM – 3 PM

In 1995, CDC researchers discovered 10 common ACEs relating to child abuse, neglect and household dysfunction that have remarkably been proven to have costly detrimental outcomes as children become adults. Participants will gain appreciation of the ACE study and how its findings impact adult outcomes. 2 CEU’s. Register here.
