R2EH September Town Hall with Alfred White
Join us on Wednesday, September 30th for our September Town Hall for a discussion on the impacts of Trauma and ACES (Adverse Childhood Experiences), led by Alfred White, from the League of Extraordinary People. This presentation will invite participants to learn about the evidence-based research and science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), the Trauma-Informed Approach for Care (TIC), and resilience. You will be introduced to The League of Extraordinary People’s work and you can expect to leave with tangible action steps to improve the health and wellbeing of yourself and those you support!
Alfred White is the founder of The League of Extraordinary People. Alfred didn’t have any role models growing up. By 13, Alfred was using drugs and alcohol on a daily basis and well on the way to becoming a dealer and hustler. After nearly 40 years experiencing addiction, mental health challenges, and homelessness, Alfred swallowed a 1/4 ounce of crack cocaine only 9 days after being released from prison in 2004 and nearly died. He awoke paralyzed and that is when he made the decision to seek help for his history of addiction. Alfred has since received his Master’s degree in Ministry & Psychology and is now a licensed Psychotherapist who has dedicated his life to helping others heal. Alfred’s past Adverse Childhood Experiences now manifest in his body as several chronic health conditions, including liver cancer, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and irritable bowel syndrome. He is a Subject Matter Expert and a Licensed Mental Health Therapist.
