Share Understanding and Supporting Families with Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)

Event Details

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) refer to experiences of abuse, neglect, and violence that a person has had as a child.  The traumatic effects of ACEs persist through adulthood and can negatively affect a person’s relationships with his/her children and other family members.

In this interactive training, we will explore the following questions:

 How do ACEs affect both children and families? 


How can we empathize with children and families affected by ACEs?  
 How can we effectively support children and families with ACEs? 


For answers to these questions and more, register today for this training.  


This is a REQUIRED TRAINING for the Case Management Certificate Program. More details about the program can be found on our website:

9:00 am  Networking, coffee, and breakfast.
9:30 am  Training begins promptly. (*Latecomers will not receive continuing education unit credit certificates)

Staff members of organizations working with children, youth, and/or families


Participants will:

  • Identify how inter-generational trauma, vicarious trauma and personal ACEs contribute to toxic stress. 

  • Identify how chronic stress impacts the healthy development of a child and the benefits of early intervention and community support.

  • Create a self-care plan in order to ensure effective and sustainable service delivery when serving disenfranchised communities.

  • Discover how community-based workers are uniquely positioned to build support systems that form resiliency and allow a child to thrive.
