Train the Trainer Registration

Certified Arizona ACEs Trainers educate communities, both public and private, on the foundation, history, and impacts of both adverse childhood experiences that may contribute to negative adult health outcomes; and positive childhood experiences that promote resilience and flourishing. Trainers contribute by helping build trauma-responsive environments with resources, presentations, and the promotion of critical thinking about how our past and present experiences influence our families and communities at large.

The Training of Trainers includes:  

  • Training on the content of the Consortium Training Curricula, which includes:
    • The science of ACEs, trauma and toxic stress
      • The original ACEs study, its findings, and the ongoing evolution of ACEs data
      • The impact of ACEs, trauma and toxic stress; including NEAR Science, epigenetics, intergenerational trauma, vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue
      • Strategies for support
    • The science of resilience, Positive Childhood Experiences and healing-centered engagement; and strategies that promote healing and resilience
    • The principles of trauma informed care and supporting post-traumatic growth
  • The importance of creating trauma-informed training environments that prioritize felt safety and self-regulation and acknowledge cultural responsiveness and historical trauma
  • How to deliver engaging, interactive trainings in both in-person and virtual environments
    • Understanding adult learning styles to create optimal learning experiences for participants
    • Understanding needs of the participants and adapting delivery of content and activities that support participants’ understanding of ACEs, trauma and resilience
