Has anyone researched or seen research on the ACE scores of educators (or doctors for that matter). We are doing to do a sampling but will be unable to release the data due to confidentiality issues, but would like to have some similar information to share on an HHS collaborative regarding ACEs and the opioid and obesity epidemics, poverty and the like. Thanks in advance for trying. Cheers, Ellen
Hello ACES Education Community, 1. I am wondering if anyone knows of schools who are collecting ACES questionnaires on their teachers and staff? 2. I am also wondering if anyone knows of any studies or organizations that study the wellbeing or health of educational employees? Thank you so much in advance! "the quote: "We Teach who we are" by Parker Palmer is driving these questions!
Hello ACES in Education Community! I have a rare opportunity to speak to our Congressman's Educational Council in their upcoming meeting on March 29 Here's the thing: I'm not a teacher or parent! And I know that Virginia as a whole may be somewhat behind other States. But I'm not letting these things deter me. I'm passionate about ACEs and trauma-informed approaches! And as a concerned citizen, I know that spreading awareness to the schools can help shift the school/youth violence tide. We...
Hello ACES Connection Community. I am offering a series of ACES Coaching Opportunities this summer primarily geared toward educators but would be happy to set things up for health care providers as well. The Coaching process I use empowers others to understand how their thinking can shift to more positive action steps in doing the work they are passionate about, considering their own ACES and the ACES of others all along the way! What are the best ways to share these types of events and...
The California Association of African American Superintendents and Administrators is looking for teachers to interview for their teacher-focused Professional Development this summer. They plan to host an online conference on September 15 (with pre-recorded mini-lectures and interviews) entitled, "Educational Justice: Turning Policy into Practice" with a focus on student equity and social justice. I did a training for them in March on ACEs, so this would be a great opportunity for some of the...
Hello- I am wondering if anyone has any resources for curriculum or lesson plans targeting 13-18 year old adolescents that have experienced trauma. The goal is to teach them about potential trauma triggers, trauma reactions, what trauma is, resiliency, and personal wellness. There is a lot of information on these topics geared towards educating providers, but nothing for the kids who have experienced the trauma. Thanks! -erin
I am curious to know how members of the group are seeing trauma-informed care being implemented in local/state education agencies or even private education/community support agencies that look at collective impact. Particularly, in addition to reading/math strategies, technology, curricula-- as observed in your work--which improvement content/strategies/competencies are emphasized by local/state education agencies with high federal programs funding/high utilization of free-reduced lunch?
A Connecticut court is looking at the disparity in education between districts located in impoverished communities and those located in communities of higher means. The court is not specifically addressing ACEs, but addressing issues of poverty, could open the doors to increasing opportunities to build resilience. More information about the court case can be read here . Court considers fairness of state education funding. CT Post by Bill Cummings
Hi Jessie, I'm most like going to do a master's thesis on teacher ACE scores and their perception of discipline practices in schools. Did you happen to get information on your questions? I would love to hear what you got if you did. Thanks!
Not yet! I looks like you are doing this work! How can I help? I have been working in schools for many years... I would be happy to be a sounding board if you want or need one! Thank you for doing this important work!
Erin, I would suggest you consult with the child's trauma therapist. Any child that has a trauma history should (and would greatly benefit) from having a "Trauma Trigger Management Plan." Avoiding triggers creates a fine line to walk. In a classroom setting - I think it's very important to avoid triggers - in a personal confidential and therapeutic setting - where a child may want help processing a trigger - is a different scenario but should only be addressed by a team working with that...
Hello everyone, I am going to add a link to what I like to use. I am clearly biased as I work for another branch of the same company. We are not mandated however to utilize but I do integrate this workbook with other materials which target other relevant topics for my populations. The workbook I use seems to cover many of the topics highlighted. There is also a manual. NeuroLogic® Workbook: You Can Change Your Mind by Kathy Van Horn Hopefully this helps. Heloise
I recently provided my campus a brief training on Trauma and Learning. As part of this training I included information about ACEs, gave teachers the ACEs questionnaire and discussed how our own ACEs score can affect teaching/teaching styles and how educators relate to their students as well as other faculty members. My final question for them "What ACEs score do you bring into the classroom?"
