Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs): Shaping All of Our Lives

ACEs are everywhere and they influence and inform each of our stories, shaping who we are, how we behave, and how we relate to others. While we professionals attend to ACEs in our clients, we pay less attention to how our own ACEs affect our lives and work. Each of us need to look at the ACEs in our past, so that we can move forward into a brighter future that allows us to heal and to be fully present in every part of our lives and work as we serve our communities.
