ACEs Action Alliance

The ACEs Action Alliance is a multi-sector collaborative of individuals, public and private organizations. We work together to promote a trauma-informed, resilient Clark County. We align local efforts by convening partners, assessing needs, raising awareness about the causes and impact of trauma and toxic stress, measuring progress, and promoting approaches that build individual, family and community resilience. We meet monthly and welcome new members. Please see the calendar for the date of our next meeting.

New state law supports family resilience

ACEs Action Alliance

Trauma is pervasive. To create an environment that takes into consideration that impact of trauma, we must all be SAFER:
• Sensing why the person is behaving as they are.
• Acknowledging that individual’s need to feel safe.
• Understanding how you, as a caregiver, are feeling at that moment. Will you be able to give the individual in distress what they need?
• Engaging them through positive interactions, for example, by praising them.
• Ukeru means “to receive” – how is the person in your care receiving what you are offering? Do you need to adapt your approach?
