This on-demand professional training program on ACEs, Complex Trauma, and Toxic Stress: Implications for Affect, Behavior, Cognition, and Physical Health is presented by Jerrod Brown, Ph.D.
Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are traumatic exposures to various forms of neglect and abuse (e.g., emotional, physical, or sexual) or other traumatic experiences (e.g., household dysfunction, parental incarceration, caregiver separation or divorce, etc.) occurring prior to the age of 18. Research has found that when these traumatic experiences are left unaddressed and untreated, they are significant predictors of poor health outcomes throughout the lifespan.
Developed for professionals, this program explores the impact ACEs, complex trauma, and toxic stress have on clients' affective, behavioral, cognitive, and physical health. Related topics covered during this program will include COVID-19, executive dysfunction, self-regulation deficits, threats to emotional well-being, social skill deficits, digestive health issues, addictive behaviors, prenatal trauma, intergenerational transmission of trauma, betrayal trauma, poverty, food insecurity, epigenetics, community and social trauma, bullying victimization, screen time misuse, sleep disturbances, immune-mediated diseases, inflammation, resilience, and trauma-informed care (TIC) among others. Practical tips, strategies, and solutions will be shared throughout this training with the goal of improving screening, goal planning, and intervention practices. Empirically-based research findings are highlighted throughout this program.
