Northwestern Prevention Collaborative offering Adverse Childhood Experiences training in April

Published

on

Northwestern Prevention Collaborative and the Prevention Department at Northwestern Community Services Board, in conjunction with community service board prevention departments from across Virginia, will offer a free virtual training on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) on Thursday, April 22nd and Wednesday, April 28th. Each class runs from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon.

According to the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention, 61% of adults have experienced at least one ACE while one in six adults have experienced four or more ACEs in their lifetimes. This trauma can have lasting effects on their mental health and well-being. It even increases the likelihood of developing chronic diseases and some cancers. ACEs training is designed to raise awareness of what ACEs are and the resources available to help reduce them, ultimately improving the health of our communities.

Pre-registrations are required. Register for the April 22nd class HERE. Register for the April 28th class HERE. For more information on either class, visit facebook.com/LordFairfaxYRA.
