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. The findings on trauma, health, mental health, and substance use have informed our work as social workers and caregivers 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 is an important part of offering good trauma-informed care and yet ACE scores are often under-utilized in social work practice. Through both lecture and interactive work, this half-day course will highlight what ACEs means for our adult clients and how ACEs can inform our practice on both micro and macro levels.
