Resilience factors help prevent ACEs and mitigate the impacts of ACEs. Contextual and systemic resilience are KEY. Teri Barila says, “Our kids are the indicator species for the health of the communities.” Our communities function as living systems and self-organizing systems thus looking at Resilience in the ecosystem is key. Creating a community conversant in Resilience. Each of these.
To illustrate the importance of resilience, the aforementioned study measured the number of ACEs and resilience factors among a sample of 2,500 people. For those who scored 4 or more separate ACEs, 39% of those who were considered to have low childhood resilience reported having ever felt suicidal or self-harmed. By comparison, only 17% of those with 4 or more ACEs who had high childhood.
Protective factors are competence-enhancing assets or resources that reduce the harmful impacts of ACEs and subsequently promote positive adaptation (Sameroff, 2006).In the resilience literature, a protective factor is specifically defined as a factor that interacts with a risk factor to moderate the negative effect of that risk factor (see Fig. 3).
A range of factors may moderate the impact of ACEs on life course health, providing resili-ence to developmental harms and consequently, better outcomes despite a history of multiple ACEs (19). Al- though many definitions are available (20), resilience typically describes the ability to adapt successfully to dis-turbances that threaten development of a positive life course or the ability to.
ACEs Resource Packet: Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Basics. What are ACEs? The term Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) refers to a range of events that a child can experience, which leads to stress and can result in trauma and chronic stress responses. Multiple, chronic or persistent stress can impact a child’s developing brain and has been linked in numerous studies to a variety.
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) can have lasting, negative effects on health. Here's how the ACE questionnaire can inform treatment and intervention.
The double-sided A4 poster summarises risk and resilience factors for child wellbeing. On the front side it provides information about ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences), including what they are, and the impact they can have both on health and life trajectories. On the back side it provides information about resilience factors and what can be done to mitigate the negative impact of ACEs.
