Dr. Katherine Ortega Courtney, co-founder of the Anna, Age Eight Institute, continues the discussion regarding the national epidemic of adverse childhood experiences, or ACEs, and childhood trauma.

Topics include the effects of scarcity mentality, the systemic flaws across a myriad of child welfare agencies and how to begin fixing them, and the 100% Solutions Spot.

Dr. Courtney suggests the focus should be on three areas:

  • prevention
  • collaboration
  • data-driven changes.
