Understanding Adverse Childhood Experiences
When children experiences traumatic events, it can have lasting effects on their mental health and wellbeing. These events, called Adverse Childhood Experiences, can have profound effects on community health. Studies show that 26% of adults have experienced at least one ACE, while 1 in 8 adults have experienced 4 of more adverse childhood experiences. This trauma increases the likelihood of developing chronic diseases.
Join RACSB and community ACE Interface instructors for this in-person training to raise awareness through education and to connect people to helpful resources in an effort to reduce adverse childhood experiences and ultimately improve the overall health and wellbeing of our communities.
This training is for anyone who was a child, works with children, is an adult, works with adults (you get the idea – it’s for everyone!).
Trainings are held at the RACSB at River Club Office (10825 Tidewater Trail, Fredericksburg, VA 22408 – located behind the CVS at the intersection of Route 2 and Benchmark Road). Please utilize the Training and Development Entrance located to the right when facing the building.
