Nurturing the Northland is a two-day training for professionals who work with children and families, in and around the Twin Ports of Duluth and Superior, to better understand and mitigate the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). It is aimed at educators (early care & education, K-12, higher ed), human services professionals (Tribal, county, and nonprofit), medical and mental health providers, and others who work with children and families.

Participants will enhance their understanding of (1) how “people are driven by their experience. It’s hard to focus, behave, and interact in ways that are contrary to their experience”; (2) ways to strengthen the connection to oneself, one’s family, and one’s community; (3) approaches to help keep people safe and connected in their community; (4) opportunities to engage and nurture the protective systems that impact resilience; and (5) concrete strategies to actualize newfound knowledge.
