The Pediatric Resiliency Collaborative (PeRC) provides Adverse Childhood Experience (ACEs) training for pediatric providers and clinic staff. Through the support of the ACEs Aware initiative, PeRC has developed a framework for training clinics and community partners for this training series.

This training may be taken at any time.

Training 3: Strategies for Patient Engagement

Training 4: ACEs Aware Clinical Workforce Training

ACEs Aware Supplemental Trainings

ACEs Aware Supplemental Trainings are developed by grantees and address key topics that support providers as they screen and respond to ACEs. Providers must take a Core Training (“Becoming ACEs Aware in California” training or any ACEs Aware Core Training) to qualify for Medi-Cal payment for ACE screening.

This training from Tri-City Mental Health will delve into how we each play a vital role in supporting the health and well-being of children, adults, families, and communities. The training includes self-care information, strategies, and resources to prevent and address the impact of ACEs and toxic stress and unlock the potential of the next generation.

This webinar from the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children – California ACEs Academy will discuss opportunities for ACEs screening implementation in the medical setting, identify evidence-informed clinical approaches for responding to ACEs within pediatric and family medicine practice, and present effective strategies for responding to ACEs through community partnerships.
