ACEs: Understanding Childhood Trauma and Prevention Strategies
ACEs are negative experiences that can occur during childhood, such as abuse, neglect, or household dysfunction, and they have been linked to a range of health problems later in life, including chronic disease, mental illness, and substance abuse. This presentation will discuss effective ways to promote awareness and education on the impact of childhood trauma on long-term health outcomes, covering topics such as the prevalence and impact of ACEs, how to recognize signs of trauma in children and adults, and strategies for preventing and responding to ACEs. By promoting awareness and understanding of ACEs, this webinar will help to prevent child abuse and promote a culture of prevention and support for individuals and communities affected by trauma.
