The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Resilience learning modules were created by the Community Resilience Coalition of Guelph & Wellington. We are a coalition of community organizations working together to build a resilient community that prevents and reduces the effects of ACEs.

These modules consolidate information from multiple sources to provide evidence-based, practical information for human service providers and community members. The information and available research about ACEs and Resilience is continually expanding. These modules were developed with the best-known available information at the time of production.

The Community Resilience Coalition has referenced all materials that were included in or used to develop these modules and has endeavoured to abide by any copyright requirements for the use of the materials within the modules. Should participants wish to subsequently use or reproduce any of the materials in the modules, it is their responsibility to ensure that any such reproduction or use complies with any copyright requirements.

These modules are intended for information purposes only. Participants agree to use the information contained in these learning modules in accordance with their organization’s policies, their relevant professional certification(s), and the regulations of any college to which they belong.

Participants also agree to access clinical or other supervision to which they have access, as needed to ensure the information contained in these modules is applied appropriately in the context in which they work.

The Community Resilience Coalition and its members have no conflict to interest to declare in the development and distribution of the ACEs and Resilience Learning Modules.
