ACE Trainings with Becky Haas

Throughout the two training sessions with the Internationally Recognized Trauma Informed Care expert Becky Haas, the Gausus Gyvenimas team learned about adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and trauma informed care. Learning about ACEs has been a valuable experience that will lay a theoretical ground for Gausus Gyvenimas further work. Though most of us would recognize that childhood is a crucial period when behavioral and emotional responses are formed, this training helped us to realize the real significance of childhood. ACEs not only affect how a child is performing at school but also how the child will relate to others as an adult. The training on ACEs helped to gain more empathy toward people with difficult character- too often we are quick to jump to conclusions without considering what is the real cause of the problem.
