Understanding ACEs:  Recognize Adverse Childhood Experiences and their impact on health and wellbeing

What are ACEs?

Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are traumatic childhood events, such as abuse
and neglect, parental divorce, domestic violence, and parental mental illness, among
others. Experiencing an ACE can increase the odds of developing serious adult health
issues like depression, cancer, liver disease and heart disease. ACEs can also make
people more prone to suicide, substance abuse, poor work performance and a host of
other negative outcomes. A trauma-informed perspective and approach to care can
alleviate the negative impacts brought on by ACEs and significantly improve health

Training Objectives:
Participants will be able to expand their knowledge of:

1. The importance of identifying and addressing adverse childhood experiences (ACEs)
2. The impact of ACEs’ on the brain and behavior
3. Why my community needs to get organized and mobilized to identify/address ACEs
4. Developing a trauma-informed approach to care including self-care
5. The role of ACEs in my life
