Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are stressful or traumatic experiences, such as abuse, neglect, and family dysfunction that disrupt the safe, stable, nurturing environments that children need to thrive. This training uses some of the latest knowledge about brain development to explain how difficult experiences in childhood can change brain development, responses to stress, health consequences and even early death. The training will also show how factors can positively affect the developing brain.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the original 10 types of childhood adversity identified in the ACEs study
  • Understand the differences between positive, tolerable, and toxic stress responses
  • Recognize the interplay between risk and resilience and how to cope with ACE consequences
  • Learn how the mobilization of healthy and stable social networks and interventions can prevent ACE transmission
