Without intervention, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) can create long-term physical, mental, and behavioral risks. More than 60% of Californians have experienced at least one ACE, and 16.7% have experienced four or more. The good news is, healthcare providers have a unique opportunity to prevent and respond to ACEs in their clinical settings, using evidence-based tools and trauma-informed strategies that promote family resiliency and healing.
Futures Without Violence (FUTURES), a previous grantee of the ACEs Aware initiative, is providing an additional opportunity to attend live online trainings on a trauma-informed approach to screening for ACEs in health care settings, applying lessons learned from over 20 years of addressing intimate partner violence in health care settings. This training series will also feature best practices for providing support for health care providers and staff as a critical element for addressing ACEs with patients, and the importance of centering race equity when working with families to address ACEs. FUTURES will also describe the importance of health settings building meaningful partnerships with local advocacy programs to best support patients and their families.
As you may know, in California qualified Medi-Cal providers can now receive payment for screening children and adults for ACEs once they are certified. (Note: those who are NOT seeking ACEs Aware certification and who are NOT in California are also welcome to attend any and all sessions.)
Our three part Core training series consists of an on-demand pre-recorded session and two live interactive webinar sessions.
- Session 1 (on-demand): Addressing ACEs and Toxic Stress: Understanding CUES to Support Families and Patients
- Session 2 (Tuesday June 28 @ 12pm): Increasing Staff Capacity: Trauma-Informed Care Begins with Health Care Providers & Staff
- Session 3 (Wednesday June 29 @ 12pm): Equity & Trauma-Informed Practices Are Essential to Our ACE Work With Families
