Adverse Childhood Experiences

The purpose of this course is to help you understand what adverse childhood experiences are and how they may affect children growing up. Using statistical evidence, the course also highlights the potential impact that ACEs can have in adulthood. Not everyone who has been exposed to ACEs will have negative outcomes, but understanding ACEs will help support the work and relationships you have with children.

This online activity is worth 2 hours Time-Valued CPD and can be completed in your own time.
