ACEs Training & Presentations

Working with ACEs

The course is accredited by OCN Credit 4 Learning as a Level 2 CPD one-day course. 

Credit 4 Learning is a long established not for profit educational charity working to improve the quality of education across the UK.

The course is designed for delegates who are working with children, young people or adults in education, care, or custody settings, and parents and practitioners with an interest in adverse childhood experiences.

The training helps the delegate identify the range of ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) used in the CDC-Kaiser ACEs Study, know how ACEs affect long-term health, know what can be done to prevent ACEs, and know how/who to screen for ACEs and support recovery from ACEs and how to build resilience, and also understand the basics of Neuroplasticity.

The full 3-year certification course is £120 per delegate, or £100 for a certificate of attendance only.
