About the event

Being Ace Aware (Adverse Childhood Experiences)

Adverse Childhood Experiences have been linked to risky health behaviours, chronic health conditions, low life potential, and early death. As the number of ACEs increases, so does the risk for these outcomes and can then affect someone's development through life. 

Being Ace aware will help you understand the importance of safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments for all children, young people and adults. This 4.5-hour workshop will cover how to be ace aware, the risks young people are facing when dealing with adverse childhood experiences, personal resilience, the next steps in supporting someone with a high Ace score, using a holistic family overview and exploring the benefits of therapeutic interventions and local support services. 

This study has had a positive impact on a broad range of health problems and on the development of skills that will help young people reach their full potential. Research has shown that if detected earlier, the person affected will benefit from having the support they need and will have the chance to reduce any negative behaviour or health patterns hat may be continuing for them. 

Your trainer is Sarah, she has 26 years experience, supporting people and their mental wellbeing.  Sarah specialises in using creative methods to reach out to someone who may be feeling very shut down or depressed.   With the support of her qualifications in Mindfulness, Mentoring, Counselling, Sound Therapy, Gender and LGBT diversity and Therapeutic Art she is supporting schools, individuals and local organisations to help support people in the Gloucestershire community.
