Taking an ACEs History -- Who's Doing It and How?

If you're doing ACEs histories, please do a short blog post or contact one of the community managers so that we can do so for you.

Using Visual Storytelling to Inform About ACEs


Hi guys,

I'm a big fan of visual storytelling, as a story told well can touch both the hearts and minds of those learning about it, and telling stories visually, e.g. through movies or interactive graphics, can engage people in ways that writing cannot (and especially children and young adults, which are important demographics).

I made a crude prototype of a scribe-based visual storytelling about the ACE Toolkit (that will go though a number of iterations before it's anywhere complete, but hey, that's agile development in a nutshell), and such movies, however time-consuming they would seem to be to create, are actually pretty easy to make.


I would love to spend some time on creating a number of these for the community, and I see a lot of topics that could be addressed. Just brainstorming a bit here: 

  • Personally (in editions/versions suited for different groups)
    • What ACEs are and why you should care
    • How they affect you
    • How to reach out for help
  • Professionally
    • What ACEs are and why you should care
    • How to build a trauma-informed practice
    • How to talk to your students/clients/community about ACEs
    • How to screen for ACEs
  • Policy-makers
    • What ACEs are and why you should care
    • The impact of ACEs on a larger scale
    • How to engage with the ACE community


However, you're the real experts, and I want to ask you guys what you think are the stories about ACEs that you would love to be able to tell your community, students, and clients?
