Adverse Childhood Experiences, or ACEs, are significant childhood traumas that can impact health and social well-being. These experiences can have an impact on youth throughout their lives. There is growing interest in the understanding and prevention of ACEs through a trauma-informed approach. Attendees of this workshop will learn about ACEs and what steps can be taken to increase protective factors and decrease risk factors for youth. Using materials developed by Michigan ACE Initiative, we will explore how to use this information to support individuals and communities.
