Preventing Adverse Childhood Experiences
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2018
Adverse childhood experiences—commonly known as ACEs—affect children and families across all communities. ACEs can impact kids’ health and well-being, and they can have long-term effects on adults’ health and wellness. They can even have consequences that affect entire families, communities, and our whole society. Thankfully, ACEs are preventable.
This training will help you understand, recognize, and prevent ACEs. You’ll learn about risk and protective factors, outcomes associated with ACEs, and evidence-based strategies you can use to reduce or eliminate the impact of ACEs and stop them from occurring in the first place.
Get the knowledge and insights you need to help create healthier, happier childhoods for kids today, and bright futures for adults tomorrow.
