Recognizing and Managing Your Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)

Staff and Families need a vision; they need consistency from providers; when they struggle with that vision, providers need to be the glasses. If the glasses are broken, things are not in focus. They need bifocals and distance lenses. If families won’t wear the glasses, they can’t see clearly. Your own ACEs can fog up the lenses.

Learning Objectives:

  • Assess Our Own Adverse Childhood Experiences
  • Review How Our ACE’s may impact our supervision and provision of ethical services
  • Develop strategies to ethically manage our ACEs
  • Review emotional boundaries as part of self-care
