Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Trauma – Schools Delivery


16/03/2020 9:30 am - 4:30 pm


Merseyside Youth Association Ltd
65-67 Hanover Street Liverpool

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 per cent 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 schools improve behaviour, learning and attainment and helps to produce happier and resilient children and young people. The course will build upon a schools understanding of resilience and person-centred approaches and reflect on how they currently foster a nurturing, environment for all children.
