Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE)

The impact of early childhood experiences, positive or negative, on individuals throughout the course of their lifetime is significant. These events also directly correlate to the risk and resiliency factors of those who experience them. Unfortunately, many of those we serve have experienced a disproportionate number of adverse childhood experiences. Some of these experiences may involve a general lack of support or a nurturing environment; others, however, may cross over into the realm of trauma. This session will emphasize not only our mandate to “do no harm” in working with those who have previously been wounded, but also will focus on ways to help reestablish a sense of empowerment to those who may have come to feel disempowered, and who are at an increased risk for negative life experiences.

Educational Objectives

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Utilize and interpret the results of the Adverse Childhood Experiences Questionnaire.
  • Articulate at least three adverse experiences covered in the Adverse Childhood Experiences Questionnaire.
  • Identify at least three negative outcomes correlated with experiencing adverse childhood experiences.
  • List at least three experiences that are correlated with greater resiliency in individuals.
  • Verbalize two practical steps they can take to help mitigate adverse childhood experiences and foster greater resiliency in those they serve.
