ACEs, Trauma, and Toxic Stress

Online, On-Demand Workshop

Toxic Stress and Becoming Trauma-Informed

In the absence of protective relationships, toxic stress in childhood impacts an individual’s well-being across the lifetime. The ACE (Adverse Childhood Experiences) Study, one of the largest studies conducted to assess the association between childhood maltreatment, later-life health and well-being, is highlighted. 

This workshop provides an overview of the ACE study, Trauma, Toxic Stress and the impact on health. Resilience and building a trauma-informed approach is also explored.

This ACEs, Trauma, and Toxic Stress Workshop is appropriate for teachers, caregivers, professionals, and anyone who is interested in learning more about how adverse childhood experiences impact children…and what we can all do to foster resilience throughout the lifespan. By changing our perspective and recognizing that a child’s behavior may be fueled by a feeling they are not able to manage, we are able to build the foundation to help a child that has been affected by ACEs, trauma, or toxic stress.

Workshop Participants Will Learn:

  • About the ACE study, including the ACE Pyramid which provides the conceptual framework for the study;
  • Outcome and findings of the ACE study;
  • Definition of toxic stress and its impact on the developing brain;
  • Impact of early adversity on lifelong health – emotional and physical;
  • How resilience trumps ACEs; and
  • The importance of creating trauma-informed and resilience-building practices based on the findings of the ACEs research.

Cost: $20 (add $10 to receive 1.5 CEUs)
