True or False? Many programs and interventions available in the community can help to prevent ACEs.
Justification: 
Raise awareness by educating people about what works to prevent ACEs by sharing strategies that address the needs of children and their families with your patients including:
Home visiting to pregnant women and families with newborns. Currently, 18 home visitation programs have been reviewed and approved by the Maternal Child and Health Bureau and the Department of Health and Human Services as having sufficient evidence to be supported for use in the community to prevent ACEs.
Positive parenting skills and family relationship approaches. Provide parents and caregivers with resources (maybe through the care coordinator at the practice) that teach behavior management or refer them to parenting classes. In these types of programs parents typically receive information about child development and the causes and consequences of violence, anger management skills, problem-solving skills, and discipline techniques not involving physical punishment.
Intimate partner violence prevention. Encourage parents to get involved with programs that teach skills and promote expectations for healthy non-violent relationships, including those that work with youth and with couples. Social-emotional learning programs teach skills such as empathy, respect, and healthy communication, and conflict resolution skills. Healthy relationship programs for couples focus on improving relationship dynamics and individual well-being by improving communication, conflict management, and emotional regulation skills.
