Childhood Trauma and Adversity

Trainer Program

For those with a desire to become a trainer


are simply interested in advancing their understanding


This live online training course is designed to prepare individuals to train others on trauma and childhood adversity. The course will develop and enhance your foundational understanding of childhood adversity and the impact it has on brain development, epigenetics, and physical and mental health. We will present the Adverse Childhood Experience Study (ACES), define trauma, resilience, trauma-informed practices and share a common language that supports all teachings.

The training is designed to provide you with the tools and knowledge to present this critical information in a manner that is readily understood by the community, business leaders, policy makers, and professionals.

The instruction and training materials, developed and provided to you by Peaceful Households will give you the necessary tools to create presentations with the flexibility to meet the needs of your audience.
