ADVERSE CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCES
This 2-hour training will include:
Information about the long-term impact of childhood experiences that include but are not limited to child abuse, neglect, parental mental illness, parental substance abuse, and witnessing domestic violence and/or other violent crimes in the home. Research shows the greater the number of ACEs experienced, the greater the impact these experiences have on an individual over time. ACEs are strongly related to the development and prevalence of a wide range of health problems throughout a person’s lifespan, including those associated with substance misuse.
Outcome: ACEs are a good example of the types of complex issues that the prevention workforce often faces. The negative effects of ACEs are felt throughout the nation and can affect people of all backgrounds. Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to identify behaviors and other factors that can promote resilience.
