Childhood Trauma and Adversity Education
An introduction to Trauma and ACEs
for all audiences
Ideal for onboarding staff, volunteers and parents
Research shows that adverse childhood experiences can impact the physical health, mental health and social well-being of individuals. In many cases it is known to seriously impact academic achievement, homelessness, poverty, incarceration, chronic disease, substance abuse and the ability to maintain a job. With knowledge of these experiences and potential outcomes parents, caregivers, co-workers, professionals and organizations can better assist individuals by identifying core issues early and prescribing better solutions that meet a person where they are at.
This 90-minute session will discuss childhood adversity/trauma using the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACEs) as the foundation for the presentation. It incorporates many of the works and ideas of Rob Anda, co-founder of the ACE study, and various trauma experts and research organizations. Additionally, the presentation includes a number of examples that help people relate research to real life scenarios.
"Adverse childhood experiences are the single greatest unaddressed public health threat facing our nation today”.
- Dr. Robert Block, the former President of the American Academy of Pediatrics
