Dowload Full Description PDF

Throughout the nation, people are talking about the ACE Study because study findings reveal this is the largest public health discovery of our time.  In any great public health discovery the most important actions in the first decades are:

  1. To tell everyone – share the findings effectively and with fidelity, and
  2. To change ourselves and promote changes within our spheres of influence.

The ACE Interface Train the Master Trainer Program is designed to support rapid dissemination of ACE and resilience science, and promote understanding and application of the science to improve health and wellbeing across the lifespan.  In less than a year, the Master Trainer Program enables delivery ACE information to diverse communities--with fidelity to science and concepts--to tens of thousands of people.

The program is structured with licensed materials, a two-day training provided by Dr. Robert Anda and Laura Porter, and a process for effectively implementing a massive ACE education campaign that is based on person-to-person interaction and community engagement.  Trained presenters use a flexible script, PowerPoint presentation, and background information that has been reviewed by national content experts, improved over time using field experience, and proven to be effective with diverse audiences.

People love this program!  The presentation script and photographs evoke new ways of thinking, compassion, hope, and motivation to act.  ACE educators benefit in three ways: 1) each presenter is part of a cohort of ACE educators who co-present and provide feedback; 2) a hosting organization supports presenters as a learning community; 3) fidelity and quality of information is assured via updates and reviews by leading experts affiliated with ACE Interface.  ACE Interface Master Trainer/Coaches have a vital role in sparking a new social movement – one with the power to transform the future of the public’s health. 

Minnesota, Wisconsin, Alaska and Montana are the first states to adopt the ACE Interface Master Trainer Program. 

Getting started is simple.  A sponsoring organization  -- frequently in collaboration with other partners --  will hold a three-year license for use of ACE Interface materials, select the cohort of up to 25 people to become Master Trainer/Coaches, and host the two-day Master Trainer course.  The host organization will also oversee development of the Trainer/Coaches, and act as a liaison to and from ACE Interface.
