Introduction to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) - Learning Course (BH03 - LC)


Description
Our newest online class, Introduction to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), is specifically tailored to child care providers. The course gives a thorough overview to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and how they might show up in the child care setting. Early childhood is an especially vulnerable time in the growth and development of children. Therefore, it is crucial that providers and teachers learn the impacts of ACEs on healthy growth and development and long-term wellbeing into adulthood. After taking this class you will be able to identify traumatic experiences that are considered ACEs, explain the health outcomes associated with ACEs, and describe at least three appropriate responses to observed signs or evidence of ACEs.
