ACES 101: An Introduction to Adverse Childhood Experiences Workshop

— Written By Image of a brain drawing


Adverse experiences in childhood often lead to negative outcomes in adulthood. The more resilient children are, the more likely they will deal with negative situations in a healthy way so they won’t have prolonged and unfavorable outcomes. Resilience is the answer to ACES!

This workshop will help increase understanding of the link between adverse childhood experiences and health and inspire a conversation about the implications of ACES at the work and in the community you live and serve.

What are ACEs?

You can divide ACEs into two major categories; abuse and neglect, and household challenges, during the first 18 years of life. The CDC continuously collects data through the participation of different states in ongoing studies. These studies have included individuals of all ages showing the lasting effects of ACEs.
