About this event

A half-day course

The 2015 report by Public Health Wales, the Welsh Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study states “There is a growing body of evidence that our experiences during childhood can affect health throughout the life course. Children who experience stressful and poor quality childhoods are more likely to adopt health-harming behaviours during adolescence, which can themselves lead to mental health illnesses and diseases such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes later in life.”

“Adverse Childhood Experiences are not just a concern for health. Experiencing Adverse Childhood Experiences means individuals are more likely to perform poorly in school, more likely to be involved in crime and ultimately less likely to be a productive member of society”.

This course is aimed at professionals working with children & young people who are interested in building an understanding of ACE’s.
