SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "A Review of the SCRIPT Conference in Los Angeles" hosted by Carol D Levine. The Summit on Community Resiliency, Intervention, Prevention and Training (SCRIPT) is an annual conference that is offered free to the public. It provides an opportunity for professionals and community members to come together to address social issues on a local level. Special co-host Dr. Debra Warner, Psy.D., the NAASCA family member who hosts the Conference, is a Los Angeles based Forensic Psychologist and a professor at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. Dr. Deb is author of the book 'His History, Her Story; a survival guide for spouses of male survivors of sexual abuse and trauma' which is available through the web site for The SCRIPT Conference. Please also visit her DrDebraWarner.com web site. During the Conference, attendees will have learned that more than 60% of the population has experienced at least one adverse childhood experience. Evidence suggests that abuse, neglect and other types of adverse experiences are significant risk factors for later physical and mental health problems including drug and/or alcohol abuse, criminal activity, suicide attempts, domestic violence, cancer and heart disease. The costs to society associated with child abuse and neglect exceed $124 billion per year. Additionally of course, adults also experience abuse and trauma in various ways. SCRIPT is committed to the treatment and prevention of trauma.
