ACES (Adverse Childhood Experiences Study) has become more and more essential to the knowledge base for a practicing mental health clinician. ACES makes the critical link between traumatic childhood experiences and significant adolescent and adult medical and mental health concerns. The study found that children who experience serious abuse or neglect, later have a much higher risk of developing mental health issues of depression, suicidality, and chemical dependency. These same traumatized children are also at significantly higher risk for medical issues including morbidity, premature mortality, obesity, hypertension, cigarette smoking, lung disease, liver disease, and heart disease.
This presentation will include material on the stress response, which is the bodies reaction to chronic stress. This presentation will focus on understanding and identifying trauma, as well as proving guidance on prevention. Several case examples will illustrate the various outcomes of trauma in client’s lives.
