Louisiana ACE Educator Program

The LA ACE (Adverse Childhood Experience) Educator Program was created through a partnership between the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals’ Bureau of Family Health and the Tulane Institute of Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health, with the support of the Louisiana ACE Initiative. The Louisiana ACE Initiative is a network of child-focused organizations dedicated to create common understanding of ACEs within Louisiana communities and child- and family-serving workforces.
The ACE Educator Program seeks to build community awareness around ACEs, trauma, and resilience science across the state via a robust and well-informed network of trained educators. This work is part of a larger effort to develop policies and practices that are informed by an understanding of the lifelong impact of childhood adversity and trauma.
