NEW DATE! Preventing ACEs and Their Associated Harms: Moving Upstream and Building Resilience

A flower blooming between the cracks of cement

Webinar Description

The association between chronic exposure to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and poor behavioral health outcomes across the lifespan is well-established, but ACEs are preventable. This webinar will explore the evidence supporting upstream strategies that can prevent ACEs from happening in the first place as well as positive childhood experiences (PCEs) that can mitigate the harms of ACEs. Recent data sources that can be used to monitor ACEs and PCEs at the state-level to guide prevention and evaluation activities will also be explored.

Webinar Objectives

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Explain the influence of ACEs and PCEs on risk behaviors using a lifecourse perspective;
  2. Describe primary prevention strategies that can prevent ACEs;
  3. Describe how PCEs can buffer the impact of ACEs on behavioral health outcomes;
  4. Identify state-level data sources that can be used to monitor ACEs and PCEs.
