Welcome to ACEs Connection!

Welcome to ACEs Connection! 

ACEs Connection supports communities to accelerate ACEs science.

ACEs Connection is a social network that supports communities to accelerate the global ACEs science movement, to recognize the impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) in shaping adult behavior and health, and to promote trauma-informed and resilience-building practices and policies in all communities and institutions — from schools to prisons to hospitals and churches — to help heal and to develop resilience instead of traumatizing already traumatized people. 

What do you get, now that you're a member?

You will receive a Daily Digest with the latest ACEs, trauma, and resilience-related news, reports, research, and activities. A Weekly Roundup has all that plus a short feature. You will have the option to unsubscribe from either  when you receive them the first time. 

We post several summaries and links to news, reports and research in the blog entries every day on the home page of ACEs Connection. That's where you'll find members' blog posts, too. On the home page you'll also find the latest members who've joined the network, a list of categories of some of our most-referenced blog posts, and recent comments from members. The activity stream lists everything that's happening on the network; it's a handy reference to use to catch up between visits. There's also the latest calendar listings, videos, "Ask the Community" where you can post questions (just below the blog entries).

If you want to receive only the Weekly Roundup, unsubscribe from the Daily Digest by scrolling down to the bottom and clicking on Unsubscribe. If you don't want to receive the Weekly Roundup, either, unsubscribe from it when it arrives in your inbox (usually on Wednesdays). 

What can you do as a member?

Create a Blog Post — We encourage you to post blogs! Share your ACEs, trauma-informed, and resilience-building activities with other members. Here's how. And also interact and comment on other members’ posts. You can post twice a week, but not more than that. If you want your posts to be included in the daily digest or the weekly roundup, be sure to include the entire post, not just a few graphs and a link. You can provide a link to your blog at the end of your post.
Customize Your Email Notifications — If you want to choose the emails you receive or want no emails at all, be sure to check out this how-to.
Find and Message Members — Find and message other ACEsConnection members from your town, city, county, state, or field of interest.
Join a Community — ACEs Connection geographic communities support ACEs initiatives in neighborhoods, cities, counties, regions, states, and nations. These communities receive guidance and support from ACEs Connection community facilitators through online and in-person activities. Interest-based groups serve people in specific sectors, such as education and pediatrics, who are implementing practices based on ACEs science.
