adverse childhood experiences (aces)

What is ACES?
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) is the term used to describe traumatic experiences before age 18 years, which can lead to negative, lifelong emotional and physical outcomes.

Science tells us that Lifelong Health is shaped by early experiences.  We recognise that early trauma can have an adverse impact on a person’s life. The Brain Development Metaphors below are being used to boost our understanding of brain development.

As a team of Transformational, Resilience Holistic Mentors, who ourselves have our own brain story, we recognise, embrace and value these key principles to effect positive change.
