Adverse Childhood Experiences Study: What do we need to know about ACES?

A Half-Day Workshop for Parents, Caregivers, Teachers, Administrators, Childcare Center Owners and Directors

Online registration will not available for this training in Bellevue until the next date has been scheduled. Please note that Simplicity Learning will be moving offices during the summer months of 2017. We will update everyone on our mail list with our new address and new dates for STARS trainings as soon as possible! Please contact us at with any questions you have about specific workshops, including requests to host trainings at your center or school.

Research tells us that ACES are common, ACES frequently occur in combination, some children thrive despite ACES, but that most medical and educational professionals are not working with the ACES model in their practices. If you don't know what ACES are, or if you have heard of them and want to know more, please do attend this training! Our four-hour ACES workshop is intended for parents, caregivers, teachers, administrators, and childcare center directors, sharing research that originated in the late 1990s and which has been followed-up by states and other countries right up to the present day. Participants will gain an understanding of the original CDC-Kaiser Permanente Adverse Childhood Experiences Study, the resulting ACES questionnaire and a resiliency questionnaire that was developed by the early childhood service providers, pediatricians, psychologists, and health advocates of Southern Kennebec Healthy Start, Augusta, Maine, in 2006, and updated in February 2013. We will compare positive factors that support resilience and that may be practiced in everyday life, both at school and at home.
