The Institute for Child and Family Well-Being was proud to host the webinar “Executive Functioning for Child and Family Well-being” with John Till, Senior Vice President of Strategy and Innovation at The Family Partnership, and Jennifer Winkler, Family Case Management Well-Being and Family Support Manager at Children’s Wisconsin, on December 7th from 11:00-12:00 CST.
Executive function skills are like an air traffic control system in the brain that helps us manage information, make decisions, and plan ahead. Stress and the lingering impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) can negatively impact executive functioning, making it difficult to effectively navigate challenging and uncertain circumstances.
This webinar explored how executive functioning is impacted by Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and toxic stress, why it is critical to our child and family well-being systems, and how our presenters’ organizations have developed and implemented executive functioning programming into their core service delivery through robust conversation with an experienced panel through their work with the Executive Functioning Across Generations and Mobility Mentoring models.
