Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin’-By World certified facilitator training is the prerequisite for the Getting Ahead ACEs.
Trauma is a deeply distressing or disturbing experience that without supports can have long-term negative effects. Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) is a term to describe traumatic events occurring before age 18. ACEs include all types of abuse and neglect, as well as parental mental illness, substance use, divorce, incarceration, and domestic violence. A landmark study in the 1990s found a significant relationship between the number of ACEs a person experienced and a variety of negative outcomes in adulthood, including poor physical and mental health, substance abuse, and risky behaviors. The more ACEs experienced, the greater the risk for these outcomes. However, understanding the impact of ACEs can lead to more prevention efforts and trauma-informed interventions that help to reduce negative outcomes.
