Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are associated with costly and deleterious health and social problems, such as homelessness. Restorative Integral Support (RIS), a new practice framework, combines knowledge of trauma, resilience, and recovery in facilitating approaches that serve the whole person in public policy, program design and delivery, and community development.This webinar will provide participants with an understanding of how to help at-risk individuals and families start RISing out of adversity and trauma through the mobilization of resilience and recovery. By utilizing the RIS framework in policy and practice, ACE-informed programs can be developed by bringing together best practices that address ACEs or ACE-related consequences, as well as other trauma, within intentionally developed healthy social networks.
