SCRIPT-NC Webinar: What you don’t know about ACES

October 2021
National guidance from multiple sources, including Transforming the Workforce and professional organizations, is consistent in the emphasis on the importance of early childhood educators being well prepared to recognize and address the impact of trauma in themselves, young children, and families. Adverse Childhood Experiences or ACEs is one of the most widely used terms when discussing the traumatic events that occur in childhood (0-17 years) such as experiencing violence, abuse, or neglect. This webinar will unpack what’s important to know about ACEs and share examples of how to integrate opportunities for students to learn and practice this content across different course offerings and field experiences.
