Embrace ACEs Workshop (Full day)
July 11, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
This training is free to all those working in a professional & volunteer capacity in the Blackburn with Darwen area
A Blackburn with Darwen study found that almost half (47%) of adults across the Borough have suffered at least one ACE, with 12% of adults in Blackburn with Darwen having suffered four or more ACEs. The study has shown that the more ACEs individuals experience in childhood, the greater their risk of a wide range of health-harming behaviours and diseases as an adult.
This interactive workshop works alongside the Blackburn with Darwen ACEs video to develop an in-depth understanding of ACEs and their potential impact on thoughts, feelings & behaviours. It aims to heighten empathy towards service users who have experienced ACEs and put this increased knowledge into practice in their day-to-day work with service users across sectors.
By the end of the session participants will have:
- Developed their understanding of ACEs and their effect on behaviours & decision making
- Increased their empathy towards service users & the general public
- Learned to adopt their practice to show empathy & understanding of ACEs
