Anderson O’Brien Family Law Attorneys Attend Three-Day Workshop on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Trauma Informed Care (TIC)

Anderson O’Brien Family Law Attorneys Attend Three-Day Workshop on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Trauma Informed Care (TIC)

August 1, 2019 was a beautiful sunny summer day in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, but Attorneys Nadine Davy, Donna Ginzl and Jeffrey Raymond were inside the Stone Harbor Resort diligently learning about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Trauma Informed Care (TIC).  This presentation was on day one of the three-day annual Door County Family Law Workshop.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website, “Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) have a tremendous impact on future violence victimization and perpetration, and lifelong health and opportunity.  Working together, we can help create neighborhoods, communities, and a world in which every child can thrive.

The “ACEs” presentation provided our attorneys with a lot of valuable information, tips and tools for assisting their adult clients who have experienced ACEs. As well as tools for how trauma informed care can help minimize the impact on their clients going through the family law process.  In addition, the presentation addressed strategies to help minimize the negative impact that adversarial litigation may have on our clients’ children.
