The YMCA of San Diego is committed to addressing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the effects they have on families. In order to combat ACEs, the YMCA partnered with our team at the Social Policy Institute (SPI) and the American Academy of Pediatrics, Chapter 3 to develop and produce the following manuals in English and Spanish. These guides focus on activities for parents and caregivers to help mitigate the effects of ACEs.
