The ACES Study is Powerful, but How Can We Use the Power for Good?

The continuing research on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) is now recognized for its relevance to criminal justice, juvenile justice, mental health, pediatrics, social services, and public health. During this session, we will review Minnesota's trends, directions and policies since the state entered the national conversation in 2011. Specifically, AFCC professionals will determine whether or not ACEs information has, or should, change his/her interaction with client, influence ultimate case decision or alert to unintended negative consequences. Attendees will leave with practical suggestions for actions within their systems. 

Our distinguished speakers include:

Retired Judge Mary Lou Klas

Judge Mary Lou Klas is a retired Ramsey County trial court judge who formed ISAIAH's Domestic Violence Task Force, which was one of the collaborating agencies to bring St. Paul's Blueprint for Safety to fruition. 

Jan Jeske, JD, MBA

Jan Jeske is a public interest and family law attorney who serves on various amicus, family law, domestic abuse and public policy committees.
