Kari Docherty-Training Coordinator

Many children and adults have had adverse childhood experiences or ACEs. These experiences/traumas can affect a persons ability to cope with every day activities. These traumas can also hurt a person’s mental health and development. Understanding what these traumatic events can do to a child is vital in learning how to work with them. In this training you will learn the different types of trauma and the 12 core concepts of trauma. Adverse Childhood Experiences and how they affect a child now and into adulthood will be discussed as well as learning more about the ACEs test.
