What this little book tells you
This little book has been written by a small group of front line practitioners who have extensive experience in supporting children who are living with trauma and/or experiencing traumatic events. We are all based in the North West of England and work in the education sector and the NHS. We have written this Little Book to inform other practitioners about what ACEs are, what their immediate effects are and how they can affect children both in the short-term and throughout their lives. We offer the reader some case study examples, and also discuss a number of different ways that have been developed to manage the effects of ACEs and to prevent them occurring in the first place.
