Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are situations which lead to an elevated risk of children and young people experiencing damaging impacts on health, or other social outcomes, across the life course.
This course addresses the issue parents/carers who may have lived in households where domestic violence, drug and alcohol misuse, mental ill health, criminality, or separation are present; or who live in
In many cases multiple ACEs are experienced simultaneously.
Taking action on the causes, and impacts of ACEs is therefore necessary in order to improve health, reduce inequalities within generations, prevent the transmission of disadvantage and inequality across generations and improve the quality of children, young people and adult’s lives
Without protective factors and the support from strong and nurturing
parents, ACEs and toxic stress can lead to unhealthy habits.
