In this video, Jane Stevens, founder of ACESTOOHIGH.com and ACESCONNECTION.com, shares the importance of storytelling in the trauma informed movement.

When someone says, ‘Let me give you some data,’ you say, ‘Well yeah, okay, tell me.’ When someone tells you a story, you want to lean forward, you want to listen.”

About ACEs

Traumatic childhood events like abuse and neglect can create dangerous levels of stress and derail healthy brain development, resulting in long-term effects on learning, behavior and health. A growing network of leaders in research, policy and practice are leading the way in preventing adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and mitigating their impact by building resilience.
