Addressing the Bigger Picture in Pediatric Settings: Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)
Free 1.5 contact hours
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are leading social determinants of health and
well-being across the lifespan. Child maltreatment, neglect, exposure to domestic violence
and other childhood adversities often cluster and can have a cumulative effect. In the
absence of resiliency factors, these experiences can translate into toxic stress for a child’s
developing brain. This module describes predictable effects of ACEs on children’s physical,
mental, and behavioral health. Strategies for a trauma-informed approach in the pediatric
setting are described. The impact of ACEs on parenting is examined and educational
resources including a safety card and video that can be used for universal education with
parents to prevent the intergenerational transmission of ACEs are demonstrated.
