FREE webinar- Adverse Childhood Experiences: Implications for Policymakers and Practitioners

David Murphey, Ph.D., research fellow and DataBank director at Child Trends,
will review the science of childhood trauma and the prevalence of childhood
experiences that can create it. Trauma, or toxic stress, can have lasting,
harmful effects on multiple body systems, affecting lifetime health and
well-being. Drawing on recently released data collected nationwide, the
presentation will highlight implications for those who work with children
and families, or on their behalf.

Learning objectives:
  *   Identify some of the adverse childhood experiences ("ACEs") that can
create toxic stress.
  *   Understand the overall prevalence of ACEs, as well as how that varies
according to type of ACE, region of the country, and race/Hispanic origin.
  *   Identify some strategies that can reduce the negative impacts of ACEs
