  • A Better Understanding, Pediatric and Adult Screening, Trauma Informed Care and More Webinar

    What are ACEs? The term Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) comes from the landmark 1998 study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Kaiser Permanente. We will watch a short video about this study. I also attribute a great deal of my education and work with ACES through Dr. Nadine Harris Burke, forerunner in the field of ACEs. It was her Ted Talk and continued research and presentations that motivated me to do my own ACE’s work, healing and I become passionate and committed to treat clients and provide ACEs training ACEs for the past four years. We experience Dr. Nadine Harris Burke’s ACEs Ted Talk. I will describe 10 categories of adversities in three domains experienced by age 18 years: abuse, neglect, and/or household dysfunction. (1) A child or adolescent who experiences ACEs without the buffering protections of trusted, nurturing caregivers and safe, stable environments can develop a toxic stress response, which can impact brain development, hormone and immune systems, and genetic regulatory systems. ACEs are strongly associated, in a dose-response fashion, with some of the most common and serious health conditions facing our society today, including at least 9 of the 10 leading causes of death in the United States. (2) (3) Identifying a history of trauma in children and adults and responding with trauma-informed care which can improve the health and well-being of individuals and families and lower long-term health issues and increased health costs.
    Learn how to screen for pediatric and adult ACEs. An ACE screening evaluates children and adults for ACEs experienced by age 18 to identify Abuse: physical, emotional, and sexual abuse; Neglect: physical and emotional neglect; Household dysfunction: parental incarceration, mental illness, substance use, parental separation or divorce, and intimate partner violence and other.
    I will briefly review the Science of ACEs and Toxic Stress; Principles of Trauma Informed care to include Brain Health, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Health and benefits by integrating Somatic Experiencing, Brain Spotting, Family Strategies and the power of Creative Narratives.
    In closing I want to discuss what we can do to continue to address and action we can take to lessen the continued impacts of COVID-19 on our world and our health care systems, it is also
    important to minimize the secondary health effects of the recent pandemics. The overwhelming stress, anxiety and uncertainty regarding COVID-19 and other major incidents to include death, loss, racism, protests, compounded by the economic fear and distress due to lost wages, employment and financial assets; mass school closures; and necessary physical distancing measures has resulted in an increase of stress-related health conditions.

    The CDC-Kaiser Permanente Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study is one of the largest investigations of childhood abuse and neglect and household challenges and later-life health and well-being. The original ACE Study was conducted at Kaiser Permanente from 1995 to 1997 with two waves of data collection. Once we understand how the past can spill into the present, and how a tough childhood can become a tumultuous, challenging adulthood, we have a new possibility of healing. As one interviewee in my new book, Childhood Disrupted: How Your Biography Becomes Your Biology, and How You Can Heal, said when she learned about adverse childhood experiences for the first time, “Now I understand why I’ve felt all my life as if I’ve been trying to dance without hearing any music.” Suddenly, she felt the possibility that by taking steps to heal from the emotional wounds of the past she might find a new layer of healing in the present. Cutting-edge research tells us that experiencing childhood emotional trauma can play a large role in whether we develop physical disease in adulthood. In Part 1 of this series we looked at the growing scientific link between childhood adversity and adult physical disease. This research tells us that what doesn’t kill you doesn’t necessarily make you stronger; far more often, the opposite is true. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)—which include emotional or physical neglect; verbal humiliation; growing up with a family member who is addicted to alcohol or some other  substance, or who is depressed or has other mental illness; and parental abandonment, divorce, or loss — can harm developing brains, predisposing them to autoimmune disease, heart disease, cancer, depression, and a number of other chronic conditions, decades after the trauma took place. Recognizing that chronic childhood stress can play a role—along with genetics and other factors—in developing adult illnesses and relationship challenges, can be enormously freeing. If you have been wondering why you’ve been struggling a little too hard for a little too long with your emotional and physical well-being —feeling as if you’ve been swimming against some invisible current that never ceases — this “aha” can come as a welcome relief. Finally, you can begin to see the current and understand how it’s been working steadily against you all of your life.
