Research into Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) demonstrates the direct correlation between childhood trauma and physical/social outcomes later in life. We therefore need to focus on a family approach to safeguarding and our early intervention services. Ten ACE’s are identified in the international research:


1. Physical abuse

2. Sexual abuse

3. Emotional abuse

4. Neglect

5. Mental illness of a household member

6. Problematic drinking by a household member

7. Drug misuse by a household member

8. Divorce or separation of a parent

9. Domestic violence towards a parent

10. Imprisonment of a household member


There will be a Q&A panel after the film, with representatives from local statutory and voluntary organisations.


This event is for professionals in a practitioner’s role working with children, young people and adults and will be of particular importance to service commissioners and providers within Local Government, Education and Health.


The PSCP and PSAB are encouraging local practitioners to attend this free event (hosted CIS’ters) as it will assist professionals understand the topics of ACE’s and the impact on lives.
