What is the Training Work Group?
The purpose of the ACEs Training Workgroup is to develop a community of ACE trainers and implement a dynamic training portfolio that is flexible to meet the needs of a variety of audiences. Our goal is to expand the number of community members, professionals, organizations and government officials in Arizona who are knowledgeable and are ready to take action on the following areas:
- The ACEs study nationally and in Arizona;
- The short-term and long-term impact of trauma along the age continuum from children to adults;
- Strategies to build protective factors within individuals and communities as part of primary prevention efforts;
- Resiliency and trauma-informed care strategies, skills, and resources to support those who have experienced adversity/trauma.
Meetings are held monthly and are action-focused.
