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.
- 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
