Episode 2: Adverse Childhood Experiences and School Safety by (Re)Search for Solutions published on 2020-04-07T13:53:46Z In Episode 2 of (Re)Search for Solutions, we talk about adverse childhood experiences, or “ACEs,” and how they can help us think more broadly about the impacts of gun violence and how to prevent it. We focus on the implications for school safety practices in particular. Lalitha Vasudevan interviews our usual host, Sonali Rajan, Professor at Teachers College and the Mailman School of Public Health, about her work on how researchers can think of gun violence as an “adverse childhood experience.” Sonali talks with Danielle Kassow from Trauma Free NYC about ACEs and how schools can take a “trauma informed” approach to gun violence prevention. And Sonali sits down with Laurie, the director of her son’s pre-school, to talk about how they approach school safety while being mindful of the needs of their students.
