FLYERS: Understanding ACEs & Parenting to Prevent & Heal ACEs

 

We are excited to share two flyers which can be downloaded, distributed, or used freely. One is brand new and the other is a revision. They are titled as follows (and attached below):

  • Parenting to prevent and heal ACEs

  • Understanding ACEs

1. Parenting to prevent and heal ACEs 
This brand new flyer us based on the work of Donna Jackson Nakazawa who worked with us and generously allowed us to paraphrase content from her book, Childhood Disrupted: How Your Biography Becomes Your Biology & How You Can Heal. Donna's book specifically addressing those of us Parenting with ACEs (which she also does brilliantly  in the powerful documentary, Wrestling Ghosts, about parenting and healing from ACEs).

2. Understanding ACEs / Revision:
As is noted on the flyer, as well, this is an updated version of the flyer the popular hand-out created and shared by the Community & Family Services Division at the Spokane (WA) Regional Health District. The first version of this flyer has been downloaded thousands and thousands of time and used by individuals and organizations.   

FINAL SIDE A UA

Both flyers were made with generous support from Family Hui, a Program of Lead for Tomorrow.Translations of these flyers are in process and will be shared by Family Hui and updated on ACEs Connection when available.  

Please share your feedback and know we referenced prior comments made in the past as well as feedbackfrom many inthe Parenting with ACEs Community. All feedback is useful, even that not incorporated into these flyers. For example, next, we will create a flyer that is supportive, encouraging, and geared towards those of us living and parenting while in survival mode and who are struggling. If you want to be part of that flyer-making team or share what is/has been most helpful for you when overwhelmed, or without enough support, safety, or resources, please do (in comments or private email).

Our hope is that these can be shared with parents, teachers, survivors, medical professionals, and others. I'll be keeping side one of the Parenting to prevent and heal ACEs on my fridge to remind me that small things can make a difference for me and my kid.

FEEDBACK:  Typically, these kinds of materials are created at a sixth grade level to ensure easy understanding for all types of adult learners.  I am concerned with some of the language like "somatic" , etc.  These terms are medical terms not lay terms. 

Heidi:
Thank you for the feedback. It's appreciated. Were there other things that stood out, or other language that is confusing? I appreciate the comments.

Cissy, if the audience for this flyer are professional its probably fine.  If the audience is parents, there are lots of problematic words....neurofeedback , cognitive behavioral therapy, etc.
