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

Please see the main post for these parent handouts in the ACEs Connection Resources Center.

These two flyers (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. Translations of these flyers are in progress and will be shared by Family Hui and updated on ACEs Connection when available.  

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).
