The Future of Adverse Childhood Experiences – ACE’s

THURSDAY 17th NOVEMBER 2022, Online

This masterclass will review developments in the field of ACEs since its introduction by Fellitti in 2000. A focus on understanding the range and life span impact of adversity in childhood has been transformative in the field of mental and physical health. However current developments which demonstrate that the ACEs score – a risk index – although associated with harmful outcomes at a population level, does not predict outcomes for the individual. This has raised questions about the value of the ACEs concept, and its future usefulness in practice, particularly as a screening tool, in child and adult practice. This course will reflect on the current position, and future directions, and make recommendations about prevention, approaches to heal the traumatic responses associated with ACEs, deal with the everyday stress associated, and promote resilience. 
All practitioners, managers, and policy makers across services health, social care, education and youth offending who work with children, young people, parents and their families affected by adversity.
