Course Description

Childhood trauma is at the forefront of early childhood services. You may have heard the term “ACEs” in recent years at conferences and trainings. This virtual blended training will give you a more in-depth look at Adverse Childhood Experiences and how they pertain to the field of home visiting. Video segments and group activities will be used to teach home visitors about the original ACEs study, how ACEs impacts early brain development, and about the negative health outcomes adults with ACEs may incur. Home visitors will also practice skills to counteract the effects of ACEs on families and learn how to foster resilience in the families they serve. (New Sept 2021) MOD437

  • Recognize the impact home visiting can have on reducing the negative effects of ACEs.
