2nd Annual Women in Corrections Leadership Summit
This online course is approved for national continuing education credits by the National Association of Social Workers.
Please note this is an online course.
Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are traumatic experiences that occur during childhood which impact development into adulthood. A collaboration between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Kaiser Permanente, launched in 1995, is one of the largest investigations ever conducted to assess associations between childhood maltreatment and later-life health and well-being. More than 17,000 HMO members provided detailed information about their childhoods and the findings over the years informs our work as social workers today.
Recognizing the presence of trauma symptoms and acknowledging the role trauma has played in an individual's life is integral to true trauma-informed care. Understanding that trauma often begins in childhood and repeats itself is a necessary part of good trauma-informed care and yet ACE scores are often under-utilized in social work practice. Through both lecture and interactive work this presentation will highlight what ACEs mean for our adult clients and how ACEs can inform our practice on both micro and macro levels.
Speakers: Colette Anderson, LCSW & Shannon Perkins, LMSW
