Free Online Course: “Addressing the Bigger Picture in Pediatric Settings: Adverse Childhood Experiences”
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are leading social determinants of health and well-being across the lifespan. Child maltreatment, neglect, exposure to domestic violence and other childhood adversities often cluster and can have a cumulative effect. In the absence of resiliency factors, these experiences can translate into toxic stress for a child’s developing brain. This module describes predictable effects of ACEs on children’s physical, mental, and behavioral health. Strategies for a trauma-informed approach in the pediatric setting are described. The impact of ACEs on parenting is examined and educational resources including a safety card and video that can be used for universal education with parents to prevent the intergenerational transmission of ACEs are demonstrated.
