POSITIVE & ADVERSE CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCES (PACEs)
Studies show, just as adverse childhood experiences have adverse impact into adulthood, so does positive childhood experiences have positive impact into adult hood. PACEs Connection, an ever-growing social network, connects those who are implementing trauma-informed and resilience-building practices based on ACEs science. The network’s 40,000+ members share their best practices, while inspiring each other to grow the PACEs movement.
ACEs ISSUE BRIEFS
Inspiring Dreams Network partnered with the ACES Coalition of WV and KidsCount to develop informational issue briefs to help our stakeholder groups (caregivers, legislators/business leaders, educators, and child-serving professionals) work as partners to diminish the impact of ACES during the pandemic and beyond.
