Group of 4 working together to solve a brain puzzle.

Event information

Held the first Thursday of every month from 10 to 11:30 a.m., Learning Thursdays raise awareness of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and protective factors, including positive childhood experiences, that help to address ACEs.

Protective Factors

Protective factors serve as buffers that help parents find resources, identify supports and develop coping strategies so they can parent more effectively, even under stress. Protective factor sessions address how to build resilience and empower action in your community. Over the next year, the Learning Thursday sessions will cover each of the five protective factors in detail. This session is focused on the protective factor, supporting children and families through positive relationships.

Attending all sessions is not required. If you are interested in attending all sessions, the remaining protective factor dates and topics are below and in the linked flyer. Trainers for this session TBA.
