Understanding Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)

  • Farmington Community Library 32737 West 12 Mile Road Farmington Hills, MI, 48334 United States (map)

In the past couple of decades, there has been an explosion of new understanding – beginning with the Adverse Childhood Experience, or “ACE” Study – about how and why adversity and trauma can reliably predict risks for mental, physical, behavioral health and productivity in the population.
This is great news! What’s predictable is preventable – because of recent discoveries in neuroscience, epigenetics, epidemiology, and resilience studies, we can understand how protection, prevention, and resilience promotion can profoundly improve health, safety & productivity, and reduce public and private costs now and for generations to come.

Childcare providers can register at miregistry, a statewide data system for professionals, trainers, and organizations to verify and track employment, training, and educational accomplishments.
