Thanks to funding from the Office of the California Surgeon General (CA-OSG) and the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS), CCALAC is providing a series of trainings as part of the state’s ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) Aware initiative. Trainings are designed to expand awareness of ACEs and help Medi-Cal providers respond with trauma-informed care.
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and toxic stress represent a public health crisis that has been, until recently, largely unrecognized by our health care system and society. Repeated or prolonged activation of a child’s stress response, without the buffering of trusted, nurturing, caregivers and safe, stable environments, leads to long-term changes in the structure and functioning of the developing brain, metabolic, immune, and neuroendocrine responses, and even the way DNA is read and transcribed.
Screening for ACEs, assessing for toxic stress, and responding with evidence-based interventions can significantly improve the health and well-being of individuals and families. Get trained and start screening today!
