This Adverse Childhood Experience Training (ACE) addresses the contemporary concern for social care and health organisations internationally. There is a growing amount of evidence showing that the experiences we receive during childhood can significantly affect us through the course of our lives. A groundbreaking study carried out in California in the mid-90s identified that children who experience a stressful and miserable childhood are more likely to develop self-defeating behaviours in adulthood. In a follow-up study, they identified that Adverse Childhood Experiences are not just a health concern, but that children who are currently experiencing ACE are more likely to perform poorly in education, become involved in antisocial behaviour and partake in substance abuse.
The longitudinal study also identified the cyclical nature of ACE and that trauma can become intergenerational. As professionals, we can reduce the impact of these traumatic events by developing a trauma-informed approach.
This Adverse Childhood Experience Training supports a paradigm shift from “What is wrong with them?” to “What have they lived through, and how has this shaped their development?”
This course enables learners to recognise, understand and manage behaviour in vulnerable children in an effective trauma informed way. It explains anger, what it might look like, and how can learn to recognise it. The course also presents a description of stress, the brain, behaviours and helps learners to develop methods to help avoid and minimise the need for physical intervention.
