Spreading HOPE (Healthy Outcomes from Positive Experiences): This presentation will offer those working with children and families practical guidance in implementing a strengths-based approach that identifies, celebrates, and promotes access to key Positive Childhood Experiences (PCEs). The presentation will cover the research behind PCEs and their mitigating effects on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), the Four Building Blocks of HOPE, and the power of the brain to heal. We will also introduce some ideas of how to incorporate the HOPE framework into child abuse prevention practice.
