While numerous trauma-informed care professionals look at trauma-informed care with a general lens, a framework that accounts for cultural adverse childhood experience (C-ACES) details the effects of racism to propose a culturally-informed adaptation of adverse childhood experiences (ACES). This considers potentially traumatizing events, including discrimination and community violence that many children and youth of color experience. This training explores concepts related to the recognition of Cultural ACES (C-ACES) and implementation, including policy and practice.

This training is like no other trauma-informed care training, as it applies the Cultural ACES framework, in addition to an anti-racist lens, every step of the way while also providing participants with information on forming a trauma-informed community network to break silos in participants’ communities.
