Community Resilience Cookbook – Communities Using ACEs Research – Arizona ACE Consortium Included

| September 17, 2014

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is exploring how to create resilience in individuals, families and communities. We know that traumatic childhood events like abuse and neglect can create dangerous levels of stress and derail healthy brain development. We also know that while adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are prevalent, they are not destiny. Well-conceived interventions can promote resilience and healing.

The Health Federation of Philadelphia—with support from the Foundation—has put together a Community Resilience Cookbook based on nine communities that used ACEs research to grow healthier. The Cookbook highlights “key ingredients” offering context, definitions, and questions to help you think about building resilience in your community. Are you seeing progress where you are? If so, please share with us on the site.
