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.

October 28, 2021 12:00 pm – December 16, 2021 12:00 pm

This free training 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:
