ACES and Protective Factors: Effects on Parent Involvement

  • February 20, 2014
  • 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
  • Webinar
The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study is one of the largest investigations ever conducted to assess associations between childhood maltreatment and later-life health and well-being. Childhood abuse, neglect, and exposure to other traumatic stressors which we term adverse childhood experiences (ACE) are common. How do ACES impact parent engagement and involvement? This webinar will include information from the original study, as well as information from two programs regarding the prevalence of ACES in their parent population and how they are working to build protective factors and engage parents. A parent leader will share the experiences of her own ACES, and the proactive steps she is taking to keep her children from experiencing ACES.
