Podcasts & Videos: Pinetree Institute Community Connection

Community Connection explores community-based approaches to addressing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and their long-term effects. Dr. Larry McCullough, Executive Director of Pinetree Institute, engages in thoughtful conversations with leading researchers and practitioners in such diverse fields as education, law enforcement, recovery and addiction, social services, mental health counseling, and medical services. Our guests share the insights, stories, and key discoveries of their work applying trauma responsive approaches to reducing the consequences of ACEs and boosting the impact of Positive Experiences. Not just for professionals, these episodes are helpful for parents, family members and community members wishing to understand how best to counter the destructive effects of ACEs through effective community response.

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are linked to a host of long-term health and societal challenges from depression and suicide, to heart and lung disease, to incarceration and drop-outs. In response to the opioid addiction and overdose crisis in Southern Maine and the Seacoast region of New Hampshire, Pinetree Institute has committed to spreading awareness of the latest ACEs research and trauma responsive approaches to addressing the effects of ACEs on children and the adults they become.
