It [Train the Facilitator Certification program] emphasizes the ability to be flexible and adjust facilitation techniques to meet the specific needs of the group. Also the ability to build confidence by gaining a solid understanding of facilitation techniques and getting constructive feedback from the practices [is useful].

If you know ACES this [HOPE framework] will tie it all together.
I believe I have brought encouragement and excitement into the demanding fields of child care and mental health [as a HOPE Facilitator]. People share that they feel hope for the future and feel motivated to continue building strong and invested relationships!
In spite of adverse experiences, positive experiences can mitigate their effects, allowing for healthy development in individuals. I like the fact that the HOPE framework can be incorporated into most companies in one way or another.
This [HOPE framework] can lead to heavy conversations, vicarious trauma, and the need to have other local resources to refer to in your back pocket. However, this information is so important and worthwhile. Helping others understand PCEs [positive childhood experiences], perspectives, and reframing strategies can help or possible change a person’s view, experience, and their own personal trauma can be uplifting.
The most helpful aspects of the Train the Facilitator training are the materials that are ready-made, and the on-going supports. Hearing others who are presenting the materials share how they add in activities, and opportunities for live experiences is so valuable!
Instead of educating communities solely on ACEs, we have included PCEs [positive childhood experiences] as a tool for moving forward. Using the building blocks, we have created action steps for moving forward with ACEs and PCEs research.

The HOPE [Train the Facilitator] training provides a much needed dose of positivity to balance out knowledge of ACEs [adverse childhood experiences]. This training complements other strength-based frameworks and validates its importance with solid evidence plus practical tools to start using right away.
