About the programme

The Adult ACEs Recovery Toolkit uses a trauma informed psycho educational model believing that by giving individuals knowledge we enable them to better understand and deal with their previous experiences.

This toolkit has been written to educate and inform parents about the impact of ACEs on them and their children. The programme provides guidance on the protective factors that help ameliorate the impact of ACEs and practical methods for parents developing their resilience they need for themselves and their children.

“A bad childhood doesn’t have to define you as an adult”

Chris Devaney from Birmingham Children’s Trust has been one of the first people in the country to deliver the Adult ACEs Recovery Toolkit.  Eight people completed the programme, five of which had four or more ACEs.

By the end of the programme all participants recorded that their self esteem had improved, with one participant going from a score of 3 to 20.

What’s included

This training event will provide delegates with a comprehensive manual which includes guidance for facilitators, weekly session plans, all handout and materials to run the programme.  You will also receive a memory stick with all the programme handouts.

The price of this event is £500 plus VAT.  This includes lunch and refreshments throughout the training days.

There is no need to have any previous group work experience to attend this course and run the programme.

PLEASE NOTE: there are conditions attached to this training programme as highlighted below.

Following the training, the newly trained facilitator will be responsible for ensuring participants of their facilitated Adult ACEs Recovery Toolkit complete anonymised feedback forms about their delivery and the Toolkit programme and return them to Rock Pool in order for the Adult ACEs Recovery Toolkit certificate to be awarded.

It will be standard practice for the facilitator to return an anonymised data return form to Rock Pool every time the Adult ACEs Recovery Toolkit programme is completed. This will then enable us to put some measurements in place and we will be able to share the outcomes with all organisations who run the programme.

Facilitators will agree to sign up to a Continuing Professional Development event after two years and before three years post training, to maintain their licence / accreditation.  At this event we will update all facilitators on the programme developments, learning etc.
