ACEs Screening Best Practices for Pediatricians

December 2, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


This training will provide an overview of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), discuss the additional issues that stem from ACES, explain why it is important to identify and address trauma in early life, and examine how early intervention can impact patients’ heath.

After the training, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the link between ACEs, additional adversities, toxic stress, health risks and outcomes.
  • Identify early life adversity factors and toxic stress and explain their relationship to clinical outcomes in pediatric primary care.
  • Explain the rationale for early detection of ACEs and integration of trauma screening in a pediatric clinical setting.
  • Determine the appropriate interventions for pediatric patients as indicated after trauma screening.
