The Power of Trauma-Informed Care
ACEs Aware Provider Supplemental Training

This free training, provided through the statewide ACEs Aware supplemental training grant, aims to enhance provider insight about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).  Providers will learn how screening for ACEs, assessing risk for toxic stress and responding with trauma-informed care can help inform patient treatment.  The earlier we can identify that an individual is experiencing ACEs and toxic stress, the sooner children, adults and families can be connected to the resources and services they need to heal.

Who should attend: This training is open to primary care, pediatric, health care and behavioral health providers.

Upcoming trainings are on the following Thursdays from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm. Register for free by clicking on the links below:
