Adverse Childhood Experiences Information Session @ Online
Jan 25 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Training

If you could prevent a child from becoming a statistic would you?

What are some risk factors for children to have poor health or turn to drugs and alcohol?

What can you do to help kids in your community reach their full potential?

ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) can impact children’s’ health and well-being. They can have long-term effects on adult health and wellness. Their consequences can affect families, communities, and systems.

This webinar will help you understand and recognize ACEs. Get the insights you need to create healthier, happier childhoods for kids today and bring futures for adults tomorrow. Learn about risk and protective factors for ACEs, their outcomes, and strategies you can use to reduce childhood adversity and stop it in the first place. This is an introductory training for everyone, parents and professionals alike. All registrants will receive a certificate upon completion of the webinar.

Register HERE for the upcoming training in January (no cost), view the flyer HERE, or contact Heidi Lynch, Program Manager for MTR Program, at 719-651-3772.
