Adverse Childhood Experiences, or ACEs, have been called the #1 Public Health issue of our current time. ACEs refer to childhood traumatic experiences that impact our life-long health outcomes.
We will explore the meaning of ACEs in our lives by reading The Deepest Well, a powerful story that explains how trauma impacts our health and well being, as well as how to buffer ourselves and especially our children from the impacts of childhood trauma. The Deepest Well was written by Nadine Burke Harris, a pediatrician serving the Bayview Hunter's Point neighborhood in San Francisco.
At our first meeting, Dr. Donielle Prince of ACEs Connection will share a presentation on ACEs to provide context for our reading of The Deepest Well, and we will set a reading target for our next meeting. Library copies of the book will be available for checkout for the duration of the book club session.
At our second meeting, we will discuss our first impressions of the book and its relevance to our lives and communities.
At our third meeting, we will complete our discussion of the book and talk about ways to create a more resilient Berkeley. We hope you will join us, sharing your insights and inspirations.
This session of the Resilient Berkeley Book Club will meet on Fridays from 2:00pm-3:30pm.
Fridays: November 2, November 16, November 30
