Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are stressful or traumatic events that occur in childhood, including abuse (physical, sexual, emotional), neglect, witnessing IPV, and/or household mental illness. Nearly two-thirds of adults have experienced at least one type of childhood adversity. Research shows repeated exposure to these events can lead to toxic stress and poor outcomes later in life. Social workers must learn to recognize the impacts of trauma and how to work with children and adolescents who have been traumatized without re-traumatizing them. This session explores how to use ACEs scores to guide treatment and improve the lives of children and families
