Childhood Adversity and The Compassionate Christian Response
Did you know adverse childhood experiences are very common, yet they are often unrecognized as contributors to poor physical and emotional well being across generations? This 8-week Bible-based small group study is designed to promote the well being of children and to decrease the adverse life long public health impact of trauma on the developing child. We will look at the connections between the science of the brain, human development, education and the teachings of Jesus and the Christian church.
Sundays, October 6 – November 24, 12 noon – 1:15 pm.
Free and materials will be provided.
Class facilitator: Debra Palmer, PhD, DNP, Family Nurse Practitioner, former Kaiser Nurse Practitioner, and current UCD faculty member.
The course was originally entitled Bruised Reeds & Smoldering Wicks by Chaplain Chris Haughee of Inter-mountain Ministry of Montana.
Week 1, October 6, lunch will be provided.
Class size limited to 20
