The Impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences on Health: A Personal Story of Resilience & Hope with Coach Beverly

Adverse childhood experiences (ACE) are associated with an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and a variety of other health consequences for adults. This session reviews how diabetes care and education specialists can provide screening, assessment, and trauma-informed care to individuals who experienced ACEs and are living with toxic stress.  We will explore strategies to address ACES and improve outcomes for individuals and communities. Throughout, we will focus on supporting self-care with a focus on recognizing and promoting resilience.

What We Say Matters: Language that Respects the Individual and Imparts Hope

What we say matters. As educators, advocates, spouses, friends, and providers, our use of language can deeply affect the self-view of people living with diabetes every day. The language used in the health care setting is immensely important in determining the success of the interaction and long-term relationships. Thoughtful communication provides a sense of support and empathy and moves both the provider and person with diabetes toward greater satisfaction and success.

Webinar Testimonials:

“I think Beverly’s presentations are fantastic. I’m an RN, MSN, CDCES and I’ve had type 1 diabetes for more than 30 years. Nevertheless, I always take away something from Beverly’s presentations. Great teaching techniques, great pacing, great content. Of all the diabetes education I’ve received as a CDCES, Beverly is my favorite presenter, hands down. Thank you so much.”

Ann (Meds for Type 2 Webinar)

“I have never been disappointed in any presentation delivered by Beverly and this is no exception. It was very helpful to know how to best use my study time and what areas to focus on as well as the details of how to interpret the questions. I use the Diabetes Educations Service frequently and find it to be a valuable resource in increasing and improving my career path in diabetes education. Thank you for this wonderful service and support!!!”

Keep up the good work!”
