About The Event
The purpose of this course is to help you understand what adverse childhood experiences are and how they may affect children growing up. Using statistical evidence, the course also highlights the potential impact that ACEs can have in adulthood. Not everyone who has been exposed to ACEs will have negative outcomes, but understanding ACEs will help support the work and relationships you have with children.
Upon completion of this class you will be able to:
1. Identify adverse experiences that can impact on a child's development and their response to stress.
2. Understand the importance of healthy brain development in a child’s early years and the impacts of toxic stress.
3. Understand that experiencing adversity in childhood can have a significant impact over a person’s life course resulting in ill health, poor wellbeing and in some cases premature death.
4. Be able to identify a range of social and community impacts resulting from ACEs.
5. Be able to give key examples of ‘Protective Factors’ that can help prevent ACEs and different strategies that can help build resilience.
6. Understand what it means to look at adverse childhood experiences through a ‘trauma informed lens’.
7. Understand how building resilience can help mitigate the impact of ACEs.
