Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) have a tremendous impact on future violence victimization and perpetration, and lifelong health and opportunity. Working together, we can help create neighborhoods, communities, and a world in which every child can thrive. ACES is a theoretical framework of understanding human health outcomes and suggests how traumatic events may impact health and behavior. The content contained in this training details this framework and suggests approaches to identify, resolve, and treat trauma to improve health outcomes for individuals as framed by this approach.
