Adverse Childhood Experience – ACEs

In the mid-1990s Kaiser Permanente and the Centre for Disease Control in America undertook an enormous piece of research which linked Adverse Childhood Experiences with future health outcomes. This half-day online workshop will discuss the research, look at the impact of ACEs, learn how we can become more ACEs sensitive and respond to children’s behaviour in a trauma-informed way. This workshop drawers upon the work of Bessel Va Der Kolk, Bruce Perry and Dan Siegel.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Increased knowledge of ACEs and their long term health impact;
  • Increased knowledge of the neuroscience of trauma, and
  • Increased capacity to help support clients who have experienced ACEs and trauma.

REGISTER NOW! PLACES ARE STRICTLY LIMITED TO ENSURE THAT YOU EXPERIENCE A HIGH LEVEL OF ENGAGEMENT AND INTERACTIVITY.

Acknowledgement

LEAD acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we gather and work on, and the land that you are on while visiting our website. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. A better understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures develops an enriched appreciation for Australia’s cultural heritage and can lead to reconciliation. This is essential to the maturity of Australia as a nation and fundamental to the development of an Australian identity. Understanding and respect are guiding principles of LEAD’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
