About this event

Let the Echoes of Childhood Be Heard: Understanding the Impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Through The Narratives of BIPOC Clients

Friday, March 4, 2022 , 1-4 p.m. Workshop Presenter: April Harvin, LCSW

Location: Online

Webinar will be held via Zoom videoconferencing platform. For instructions on how to access the webinar, see the Directions page on the Clinical Practice Enrichment Series Web site.

Program Description

Since the landmark longitudinal study initiated in the late 1990’s by the Kaiser Permanente Health Management Organization and the CDC, numerous studies have demonstrated associations between Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and long-term health, mental health and social outcomes. There is mounting evidence that the prevalence of ACEs is not equally distributed among racial and ethnic populations. African Americans report consistently higher frequencies of childhood adversity than their white or LATINX counterparts. Thus, the consequences of ACEs on development and adaptive functioning so dramatically reported in study after study, fall disproportionately on individuals of color.

This vignette-based workshop will explore clinical implications and approaches to mental health treatment of BIPOC Individuals impacted by ACES. Starting with the definition of Adverse Childhood Experiences, this program will examine the prevalence of ACEs in BIPOC communities, highlighting disparities in both incidence and consequence. Small group discussion of clinical vignettes will be used to enable workshop participants to understand and implement treatment for ACEs using client narratives as their guide.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this workshop participants will be able to:

  1. Provide a definition of Adverse Childhood Events (ACEs);
  2. Describe the prevalence of ACEs in BIPOC communities;
  3. Analyze patient narratives through the lens of ACEs;
  4. Identify at least two treatment implications for working with BIPOC clients;
  5. Describe one intervention that addresses the presence of ACEs in a client’s developmental history.
