Experiencing trauma can have long-lasting health and social consequences. Trauma often results from extreme or prolonged stress in childhood, commonly referred to as adverse childhood experiences or ACEs. ACEs are common, in England almost half of adults have experienced at least one ACE and 10% have experienced four or more. ACEs provide a further impetus to build stronger children rather than mend broken adults. ACEs should not define anyone’s future.
Emerging evidence shows that ACE aware and trauma-informed organisations improve behaviour, learning, attainment and support happier and resilient children and young people. The course will build upon organisations understanding of resilience and person-centred approaches by reflecting on how they currently foster a nurturing environment for all children and young people.
