Using the HOPE framework to create concrete organizational improvements | Interview with Aimee Zeitz-Gruber, MFT
Aimee Zeitz-Gruber discusses the importance of incorporating positive childhood experiences into multiple areas of YMCA San Diego.
To this day, young Black girls are perceived to be less needing of love and leniency and less innocent than their peers. They are pushed toward adulthood long before their childhood years have begun to end.
Developing a practice that incorporates positive childhood experiences (PCEs) can lessen the lifelong effects of harmful experiences and allows the brain to heal from trauma.
Positive childhood experiences are protective experiences that help heal the brain from trauma and promote healthy mental health in adulthood.
It has been a year full of strong partnerships, and a growing community, learn how HOPE has spread this year through partnership and collaboration.
