Rock Pool has developed this one-day Introduction to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) to support commissioners and practitioners to understand the increasing need for a practical approach to mitigate and prevent ACEs, particularly as we gain a greater understanding of ACEs and their impact on individuals, families and communities across the life course. The Department of Health has said:
“Acting to prevent ACEs could improve health,reduce inequalities and save money. Taking action on the causes, prevalence and impacts of ACEs is therefore necessary in order to improve health, reduce inequalities within generations, prevent the transmission of disadvantage and inequality across generations and improve the quality of children, young people and adult’s lives.”
To introduce delegates to a trauma inform model of working with families who have experienced a high number of ACEs.
To enable practitioners to identify families where ACEs are a prevalent factor and to have a better understanding on how this impacts on their current behaviour.
To support delegates to work with those families to develop their resilience and protective factors.
Understand the theory behind and use the ACE screening tool.
Understand the impact of ACEs on children and families.
To provide delegates with the opportunity to practice and identify ways in which using the ACE methodology can support them when working with their client group.
Understand a trauma informed model and how this can benefit clients in the development of their resilience and protective factors.
This training is suitable for any professional who work directly with or manage staff who regularly case manage and assess children, young people and / or families. It is also suitable for people who commission services for children, young people and families.
