Episode Seven: When ACEs High Isn't a Good Thing
Welcome back to The Child Advocacy Podcast!
In this episode, we talk about the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study – or ACEs – and its effect on children, adults, and resiliency. Click here for a PDF of information about the ACEs study and how you can use it to properly advocate for children.
Then, in Just the Facts, Ma’am, we talk about how to describe a living situation that might be less than ideal in your Report to the Court.
Listener Question: “I went unannounced to a home where my CASA kids have been placed back with the dad in a trial reunification. The smell of the home hit my nostrils as soon as the door opened. I can’t even talk about what I saw. That place was filthy. How do I tell the court what I saw in my court report. There isn’t room to describe this place.”
In our final segment, Angela and Brandon revisit the idea of self-care and talk about actionable plans to practice radical self-care. You can get your own self-care plan worksheet here.
