“Healing the Emotional and Physical Scars of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)”.

There has been a growing body of evidence that strongly associates Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) with both physical and psychological manifestations in childhood and adulthood, ranging from the inability to trust, poor mentalisation and affect regulation, hypervigilance and hyperactivity, impaired cognition, impulse and conduct disorders, deliquency and crime.

As therapists, it’s not just imperative that we comprehend the linkages between ACE factors and clinical manifestations, but also understand the cumulative impact of ACE factors.

Compared to an ACE score of zero, having four ACEs for example, has been shown to have a seven-fold increase in substance abuse, while an ACE score above six can increase attempted suicide rates by 30 times.

This workshop will identify and discuss the range of ACEs, including emotional abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, living with domestic violence, substance abuse and parental abandonment.

In particular, we look at the challenges presented by cumulative ACE factors, ranging from attachment disruptions to chronic anxiety states. It will highlight the link between ACEs and physical health, in particular obesity, type II diabetes, autoimmune disorder, respirator problems and heart disease.

The training will also introduce the range of Protective and Compensatory Experiences (PACEs), which can buffer the immediate and long-term effects of ACEs and how these can be facilitated and how to become a trauma-wise practitioner.

The workshop will particularly look at:

The immediate impact of ACEs on children, such as their capacity to process threat and fear states, lack of emotional self-regulation, meta and social cognition and memory processing.

Emphasis will be placed on contextualising the impact of ACEs as necessary adaptations that individuals have to make in order to cope and survive exposure to chaotic, unpredictable and stressful environments, from which they cannot escape.

The risk and vulnerability factors associated with four or more ACEs and physical health problems will be examined, while looking at the increased risk of somatic manifestations including obesity, type II diabetes, autoimmune disorders, respiratory problems and cardiovascular disease.

In addition, we will discuss the range of mental health challenges associated with four or more ACEs, including depression, anxiety, psychosis, attachment disorders and complex PTSD.

We will also evaluate the evidence for psychosocial factors, such as increased risk of revictimization, violence, crime, imprisonment and homelessness.

The long term effects of four or more ACEs on physical health, mental health, psychosocial functioning and early death.

Participants will have an opportunity to assess the measurement of ACEs through the Adverse Experience Scale and will learn how to integrate this into their assessment and history intake questions. Alongside this enhanced awareness of ACEs and their impact, delegates will be able to understand and link complex physical and mental client presentations to a hostory of trauma and work with these using the principles of trauma informed practice to become a trauma wise practitioner.
