Adverse childhood experiences, or ACEs, are events occurring in childhood (before the age of 18) that are potentially traumatic. To help staff support children or young people who have suffered from ACEs, this course teaches learners how to recognise what ACEs are, the trauma attached to them, and identify protective factors.
This Adverse Childhood Experiences training course teaches staff how to recognise whether a child or young person has experienced adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and how to provide support for them.
In England, over 80% of children in need have experienced at least one ACE. Understanding the long-term impact of ACEs can help staff in the education sector better provide trauma-informed care.
