A training on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) is available to adolescent-serving agencies
Space is limited.
Young people who have experienced child abuse, sexual abuse, mental health issues, domestic violence, suicide, etc. are traumatic stressors known as Adverse Childhood Experiences.
The training will provide
- An overview of the adverse childhood experiences (ACE) that impact young people.
- The signs and symptoms for child abuse / neglect, domestic violence and sexual assault, mental health issues, drug and alcohol abuses.
- Community resources and best practices on how to make referrals for youth who are experiencing ACE
Participants will have an overview of how Adverse Childhood Experiences can cause traumatic stress that will affect every aspect of a child’s life and development. The ACE study data shows there is a connection between Adverse Childhood Experiences and health, relationships and success in adulthood. By taking a look at Trauma Informed Program Practices, you and your staff will be able to respond to the trauma-affected child or youth by seeing challenging behavior, learning difficulties and lack of social and emotional development in a whole new context.
