What stood out to you about the exercise and presentation on ACE's and BCE's?

  • # of individuals that had a best friend - support system

  • Last question on the survey - interpretation of "good time"

  • Great to see the BCE

  • Sees how BCE can mitigate ACE in her work

  • We can't change the past but we can make a difference moving forward

  • What is the research on the balance of BCE and ACE and how BCE can mitigate ACE's

  • More benevolent expeirences than ACE's

  • More benevolent than anticipated/expected

  • Financial impact higher than anticipated

  • Smoking is high with vaping so common now, hope benevolent helps

  • Every box was checked

  • With negative, there was positive

  • True diversity in community in terms of impacts

  • Always surprised by statistics - shocking

  • It only takes one caring adult to make a difference, everyone had that

  • Going through ACE's people in room are successful, but had BCE's and overcame. Many in our community don't have BCE's and positives, so can't be here - we are here for them.

  • Need to be able to function, human resilience is inevitable.

  • We have a huge responsibility.

  • Reassuring to see high number of BCE’s but unsure of memory recall. How much is actually recalled?

  • Power of having one positive, supportive adult. ACE can be empowering. See adults who have overcome it. See it as tool to understand and address this.

  • Commonality of experience.

  • Using tax dollars to fully support this.

  • Universal human condition.

  • Brain development and ripple effect on family and communities, multi-generational

  • Direct correlation to outcomes

  • Sees the trauma in men from childhood. Important to focus on coaching men.

  • ACE is not a destiny, you can retrain and replace with other strategies and tools. Earlier the better.

  • Acceptance of what can't be changed. How do you reflect on others, not taking it out on them?

  • Don't want to get the next person upset when dealing with something personal.

  • What we see perpetuates. "Hurt people hurt people", but healed people can heal people. Social emotional learning.

  • How important early childhood education is to mitigate risk.

  • Benevolence - ohana you grew up in. Benevolence factor plays a huge impact.

  • You can come out of it - you can affect a child's life.

  • Importance of friendships

  • Struck by resilience - here doing the work

  • Other people care. Important for communities who don't have these resources to create them.

  • Results are symptom. Stop mending symptom. Deal with the source. Western medicine issues and flaws - efforts to drive profits up.

  • Activity supports the research. Audience has a relatively similar growing-up experience but build resilience around protective factors. What can we do on an individual level?

  • Our failure to recognize - we label people as "no hope"

  • Collect slips to help with the data

  • We don't want to normalize - it will pass on then. We need to break that.

  • Breaking the cycle between generations.

  • Update the study with our data. Vibrant Hawai'i team or R&D team.

  • Physiological effect on adults. Book - The Deepest Well (Burke). Innovative health care.

  • How do we help students to create resilience? Kitoshima on resilience, 1955 Resilience Hawaii Study.

  • Exercise proves we can talk about it - normal. Give yourself permission.

  • Volume of people who experienced ACE's and overcome trauma.

  • Grew up all "have nots"

  • Growing up we didn't know we were poor

  • Glad it's incorporated within schools

  • Experiences and positive models can counter act ACE's

  • People had challenges growing up, but more people stood for benevolent experiences

  • People who sat down for the BCE's - you could tell they felt bad for the person they were representing

  • I like how doctors are asking questions about family life as an indicator of maybe why you might be sick

  • Never heard of it. Mindset affects your health. This study gives specific numbers.

  • Number of the positives

  • The BCE's and the offset balance of ACE's/BCE's

  • The resilience of people - even looking at this group

  • If no BCE's then what?

  • Amazing that everyone isn't aware of ACE's and the effects

  • Many people struggling

  • What is predictable is preventable

  • Work with seniors - suicide is high % in youth but decreases with age. Actually a low % of seniors are suicidal.

  • One person had at least 1 support event if numbers were low

  • Paper proved me wrong. Didn't realize ACE's numbers

  • Illustration for numbers are low in ACE's

  • Mahalo for the support

  • Tenderhearted for the ACE's

  • The visual of how a few still sat for question: "Did you have at least one friend"

  • Social restrictions

  • Explains the behaviors observed in day to day life

  • # of divorced, alcoholic was higher than expected

  • # of hungry, dirty clothes was higher than expected

  • # of hunger was lower than expected

  • Shocked study one about how ACE's and BCE's affects adult life - didn't know

  • Surprised at cost of smoking

  • % of physical and sex abuse 22-28% surprised at how high

  • Affirming to see the BCE's

  • Surprised that 85% of brain developed by 3 - that's why prenatal and early childhood education so important. Makes you want to become foster to baby.

  • Universal human condition.

  • health outcomes

  • Results reflective of room

  • Growing up not talking about it

  • Childhood reality

  • Personalized

  • The number of kids that are at risk.

  • How alcohol plays such a huge role – so many stood up.

  • Time sequence – what it would look like if different age groups were participating.  It would be interesting to see the impact across generations.

  • The overlap of causes and effects.

  • Happy to see social capital question – many stood up.

  • Proud of Jessica – her sharing her story was impactful.

  • Should look at previous Hawai‘i studies on this.
