Adverse Childhood Experiences or ACEs cause toxic stress and can harm the developing brain of children. This changes how children respond to stress and has lasting effects into adulthood. We now know that this trauma also can damage our immune systems and lead to chronic health concerns like substance abuse and mental health challenges. ACEs are related to violence and other social concerns.

Training participants will gain a better understanding of what is trauma and how it affects our biology. This knowledge can help facilitate important community conversations to prevent high ACE scores and to support individuals with ACE scores.

The training is funded in part through the Family Wellness Initiative of the Office of Behavioral Health and Wellness at the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services.
