This CPD certified programme will outline the increasing evidence of the impact of Adverse Experiences of Childhood (ACEs) on the health and well-being of children and young people extending into adult life.
There is a growing demand for interventions to prevent their harmful effects.
Research will be reviewed about the impact of ACEs through population studies, intergenerational studies, and specific groups – self harming, mental health, and substance abuse, offending, and violent behaviour.
Approaches to intervention will be reviewed, to prevent the harmful impact of maltreatment and the limitations of these approaches to fit with the complex responses associated with multiple ACEs.
