Prerequisite- Part 1. If you have not participated in Part 1 of this series, please click here and do so prior to participating in Part 2. 

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are a pervasive health epidemic affecting Maine children. ACEs studies have demonstrated a graded dose-response relationship between ACEs and poor long-term health outcomes. The MaineHealth ACEs Program aims to mitigate the long-term effects of exposure to multiple ACEs in our patient population, using an integrated and data-driven approach. 

Steve DiGiovanni, MD, from Maine Medical Partners and Rebecca Brown, LCSW, from Maine Behavioral Healthcare co-host a series of educational offerings that cover the background of ACEs, how to screen for symptoms, and how to connect children and families to trauma treatment. These seminars are best suited for clinical staff, providers and administrative personnel at ambulatory practices caring for children. 


  • Learn the ins and outs of how Maine Medical Partners has approached the screening and treating of ACEs.
  • Understand workflows, data and lessons learned from MMP’s approach to trauma and developmental screening using the Survey of Wellbeing of Young children.
  • Learn how to coordinate with treatment workflows with integrated behavioral health clinicians for support and treatment.
