ACES/Resilience Surveys w/Parents

Melissa L. McPheeters ·
Hello all, I work at an Early Learning Center and we will be presenting on ACES and Resilience to the parents of preschoolers. One of the aspects we have debated is when to offer them the ACES and Resilience surveys. However, after reading https://www.acesconnection.com/blog/putting-resilience-and-resilience-surveys-under-the-microscope I am wondering what purpose it would ultimately serve (and what unintended consequences it may have) to give parents the surveys. It would be optional, and...

Re: ACES/Resilience Surveys w/Parents

Hi Melissa - This is a great question, and frequently debated. You will know your audience best. However, in my experience with a wide variety of settings - sharing the ACEs questionnaire within the context of learning, and empowering parents to reflect on their lived experiences.

ISO Trauma-Informed Child Care Programs

Suzanne O'Connor ·
Greetings! I was wondering if anyone is aware of a child care program that would consider themselves "Trauma-Informed" - implementing trauma-informed practices throughout their program. I'd like to reach out to them for an interview, with the potential of being featured in an upcoming publication. Thank you! Suzanne,

Hi Suzanne look you might want to look at, talk to Head Start, Trauma Smart in Kansas City and/or talk with Chris Blodgett in Washington State about his work with Head Start programs there. Let me know if you need more info.

Hi Suzanne, Shannon, and Leslie - We're researching potential curricula to use specifically with Family Child Care Providers, here in California. Would Roots of Resilience and other references be tailored meet their needs as well? Also, do you know whether any of these qualify for IV-E federal funding/reimbursement? Thank you, in advance

I am in Lawrence Kansas and we are using the Trauma Smart training in several preschools. They are located at Crittenton in Kansas City. Research based and great training. A little costly.
