Facilitating teams and community members from Brookings County, Codington County, Moody County, Springfield and Yankton participated in a hub training opportunity, providing Resilient Community participants a chance to become ACE Interface Presenter trained while connecting with others and sharing ideas for how to raise community capacity to know about, respond to, and prevent childhood adversity and maltreatment.
Over 30 attendees received a 6-hour training course on ACE Interface. Participants acquired the skills needed to present ACE Interface curriculum and to provide other information about Adverse Childhood Experiences within their own communities. Participants also received the materials needed in order to provide data and information in a way that their community members can easily understand.
The training opportunity was led by Tifanie Petro, Nikki Eining, and Cassie Nagel and made possible through support from the South Dakota Community Foundation’s Beyond Ideas Grant.
Resilient Communities: South Dakota provides a technical framework to support community coalitions to prepare, know, respond to, prevent and sustain multi-sector efforts to address childhood maltreatment and its impacts across the lifespan. Facilitated by a local team and supported by a CPCM Navigator, Resilient Communities is a process that help all community sectors collaboratively identify local strengths and opportunities to prevent Adverse Childhood Experiences and maltreatment.
