Event description

Description

As the Center for Disease Control (CDC) states: "Childhood experiences, both positive and negative, have a tremendous impact on future violence victimization and perpetration, and lifelong health and opportunity. As such, early experiences are an important public health issue. Much of the foundational research in this area has been referred to as Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).

ACEs can be prevented. Learn more about preventing ACEs in your community."

By the end of the training, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand the background and application of the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACE Study)
  2. Discuss the impact toxic stress and ACEs has on brain development
  3. Discuss the interrelatedness of ACEs
  4. Identify steps to reduce ACEs for future generations
