#20210422 – WEBINAR: ACEs in Real Life: Caring for and Parenting Children Who Have Experienced ACEs




(April 2021)  There are many ways for us to understand, define and explore how developmental trauma impacts children and their relationships with caregivers and parents. The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) study looked at broad types of negative childhood experience, including abuse, neglect, and family dysfunction and painted a picture of some of the possible long term effects of ACEs. In this workshop, we will expand our understanding of ACEs to include more recent and inclusive research and explore practical and supportive ways to engage in trauma-informed caregiving and parenting for youth who have experienced attachment trauma and disruptions as well as other forms of ACEs/trauma.
