ACE awareness and Trauma Informed Practice

Date & Time:

Wednesday 24 March 2021 (09:30 - 12:30)


Online - Zoom,


‘Aim of the Course’ 

This three-hour course will outline the potential impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACES) and other traumatising life events.  Explore the concept and importance of trauma-informed practice, describe what the ACE Enquiry is, what it isn't and why it's important and also consider the notion of 'resilience' and implications for practice.  The urgent need for system change in order to realise a future where prevention rather than cure becomes the new status quo will also be considered. 

‘Learning Outcomes’ 

By the end of the session you will: 

  • Understand the potential impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACE) and other potentially traumatising life events across the life course.
  • Have increased knowledge about why it is important to consider ACEs and adopt trauma informed practice.
  • Have some ideas about how this knowledge can assist you in your role, team & service.
