The Truth About Parental Alienation

Memory of childhood experience is stored in the body, not just the mind. From that first spark of life, experience has a profound impact on who we are and who we will become.

The “Building Resilient Communities and Understanding Adverse Childhood Experiences” presentation, also known as ACE training, includes in-depth information about:

- The neurobiological effects of adversity on development.
- The impacts of childhood adversity and trauma on population health.
- Resilience – what we can all do to improve health and well-being across the lifespan.

Contact us if your group or organization would like to get more information on ACE training or schedule a customized presentation.

QPR Su***de Prevention Training | Community Services Board

QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer – the 3 simple yet powerful steps anyone can learn to help save a life from su***de.

Classes offered 9/10, 9/13, 9/20 and 9/30. Register today!
https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/community-services-board/prevention/qpr

More information:
Just as people trained in CPR help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a su***de crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to the help they need. Each year, thousands of Americans, like you, are saying "yes" to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor by becoming a part of the QPR life-saving network.

QPR can be learned in a FREE, 60-minute virtual training course. Anyone age 16 and over is encouraged to take QPR training – parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, police officers, volunteer coaches, youth organization leaders, caseworkers, firefighters, and anyone who might be strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of su***de.

Fairfax County, Virginia - QPR (Question, Persuade, and Refer) Su***de Prevention Training teaches participants to recognize the warning signs of su***de, how to intervene, and where to refer someone who is in crisis.

We can all take actions to help prevent su***de.
