Building Alaska's Resiliency Network
Breakfast & Learning Laboratory led by National experts
Dr. Robert Anda and Dr. Kaufman.
November 6th, 2014 : Crowne Plaza


Trauma permeates all Alaskans and has a significant impact on children reaching their full potential, the overall cost of healthcare and workforce productivity to name a few. This day is designed to offer participants an overview of the health and economic impacts of child maltreatment and how collectively we can partner together today to impact tomorrow. This will ensure children are graduating high school, are ready to join and grown the state's economy, and living in a healthy community. With the rising costs of healthcare and insurance, together we can be mitigate these impacts by focusing on building protective factors in every community!

Community Leaders Breakfast  7:45am  9:30am
National speakers Dr. Anda,  Dr. Kaufman and Chris Soderquist will speak about ACE's (Adverse Childhood Experiences), the economic impact of childhood trauma, and what business & community leaders can do every day to support their community in being resilient.

Alaska's Story  9:45am - 11:00am
Pat Sidmore and Linda Chamberlain, Health and Social Services Planners will share data and what current activities are happening around the state to promote resiliency. Currently Alaskan adults who report four or more Adverse Childhood Experiences are

  49% more likely to be unemployed*
  274% more likely to be unable to work*
  92% more likely to earn less than $20,000 annually*

than Alaskan adults who report zero Adverse Childhood Experiences.

Learning Laboratory  12pm - 4:30pm
This highly interactive session balances presentations of concepts with interactive table conversations that will help participants develop a more rigorous, useful picture of how trauma permeates their communities, and how they can work together to make a difference.  By the end of the session, this clearer understanding will help motivate participants to continue working together  and in their organizations  to address violence.
