Webinar Description

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are potentially traumatic events that can have negative, lasting effects on health and well-being. Research has sought to quantify the prevalence of ACEs and illuminate their connection with negative behavioral and health outcomes later in life. This interactive seminar will highlight the significance of ACEs so that we might more easily connect with our clients and thus advance their healing.  ACEs documentation can also be helpful in clinical documentation.  Participants will look at the significance and purpose of quality clinical documentation and will review quality progress notes, treatment planning, and compare SOAP versus GARP notes. We must be clear as to the expectations in the event our documentation is audited or presented as evidence in the legal system.
