Course Description: 

Helping Parents Move Beyond Their Own ACEs

This session will discuss best practices and lessons learned through the KidSTART program’s experience over the past 10 years providing routine child and caregiver Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) screenings, and the program’s role in working to disrupt the cycle of trauma. Specific focus will be placed on implementing the ACE screening and working with caregivers – inclusive of birth and foster parents of children ages 0-5, and the impact of identifying and addressing caregiver ACES in order to ease barriers to engagement in services, for both the caregiver and the child.


  • Explore data and trends from caregiver and child ACE screenings
  • Discuss the impact of caregiver ACEs on the child’s treatment outcomes through case studies
  • Identify opportunities to screen/educate caregivers on the impact of ACES to facilitate improved engagement and outcomes

Who should attend: All staff of family resource centers (FRCs), child abuse prevention councils (CAPCs), and other child and family-serving organizations. Mental health staff may benefit most from this training.
