As Health and Human Service Professionals, we are aware of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the lasting effects that they can have on a developing child. However, what is not discussed as much is the power of Positive Childhood Experiences (PCEs) and the resilience that can emerge through traumatic events experienced. This presentation explains the Child Advocacy Center approach and how we can promote PCEs through connection, acknowledgment, and support. By encouraging PCEs we can create a more connected community, and strengthen our response to child abuse and neglect.
