The session will review Adverse Childhood Experiences and the impact of stress on development domains 0 to 3. One significant stressor we have all been dealing with the last two years is the impact that COVID-19 has had on each of us, our children, our loved one, our coworkers, etc. What is the impact and how is that affecting myself and others? My work? The children? What can I do? Why does the impact affect each of us in different ways? How might compassion for self and others impact both my professional and personal lives.
