Topics will include the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACEs), the intergenerational transmission of trauma, yoga and mindfulness for teen parents, identifying and serving teen parents experiencing homelessness, improving school attendance, recognizing warning signs and providing support to those affected by opioid abuse, boosting retention in summer programming, working with young parents on learning through play and early literacy, and parent and teen wellness circles.
