Understanding ACEs Workshop Registration
Adverse Childhood Experiences or ACEs cause toxic stress and can harm the developing brain of children. This changes how children respond to stress and has lasting effects into adulthood. We now know that this trauma also can damage our immune systems and lead to chronic health concerns like substance abuse and mental health challenges. Training participants will learn about risk and protective factors for ACEs, their outcomes, and strategies to implement to prevent and reduce childhood adversity.

As a result of this training, participants will be able to:
1. Identify the impacts of adverse childhood experiences on brain development as well as physical and behavioral development.
2. Explain the findings of the ACE Study.
3. Identify the impacts of adverse childhood experiences on an individual’s social and economic development.
4. Identify risk factors and protective factors for adverse childhood experiences using the CDC’s socio-ecological model (SEM).
5. Take action within their spheres of influence to prevent ACEs.

This workshop will be hosted by STAR via Zoom.
