UPDATED Parent Handouts: Understanding ACEs, Parenting to Prevent & Heal ACEs (English, Dari & Spanish)


These two parent handouts (Understanding ACEs and Parenting to Prevent & Heal ACEs) can be downloaded, distributed, and used freely. One is brand new and the other is a revision. Both flyers were made with generous support from Family Hui, a Program of Lead for Tomorrow who has also translated both so that they are available in Dari and in Spanish as well as in English.

Understanding ACEs
This is an updated version of the popular hand-out created and shared by the Community & Family Services Division at the Spokane (WA) Regional Health District. The first version of this flyer has been downloaded thousands and thousands of time and used by individuals and organizations.

Parenting to Prevent & Heal ACEs
This brand new flyer is based on the work of Donna Jackson Nakazawa who worked with us and generously allowed us to paraphrase content from her book, Childhood Disrupted: How Your Biography Becomes Your Biology & How You Can Heal. Donna's book specifically addresses those of us parenting with ACEs (which she also does brilliantly in the powerful documentary, Wrestling Ghosts, about parenting and healing from ACEs).

Great point! I think more variations, styles, formats, format sizes, etc. are needed!

Please share any you use, link to, like, know of, have created. We want to capture  as much as we can! And when we revised last versions, we read all the comments so all feedback is appreciated!
