Are you familiar with the Center for Disease Control – Kaiser Study on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), conducted in the mid-1990’s? The Adverse Childhood Study found that survivors of childhood trauma are up to 5000% more likely to attempt suicide, have eating disorders or become IV drug users. Dr. Vincent Felitti, the study’s founder, details this remarkable and powerful connection (as well as how chronic stress contributes to inflammation and adult disease) in this brief, well-done video: How Childhood Trauma Can Make You A Sick Adult.
On Tuesday, February 28, 6:30pm – 9:30pm Dr Dan Siegel will speak at Golden West College (Student Center) in Huntington Beach at a screening of Resilience (trailer). This event is the second in the film and discussion series, A Legacy of Learning: Establishing Equity in the Aftermath of Trauma (RSVP). The film is excellent and we were amazingly fortunate to get Dan Siegel to come to OC for this event as he is generally booked up two years in advance. So don’t miss this! Admission is FREE. Arrive early at 6:00pm for a light vegan dinner before the program starts at 6:30pm.
Plus — don’t forget that the Living Ubuntu fundraiser at the Veggie Grill (by the Tustin Marketplace) is this coming Thursday, February 23, 4:00pm – 9:00pm. Come any time during those hours, mention Living Ubuntu when you order, and 33% of sales will be donated to us. Thank you for your support!
