Adverse Childhood Experiences: A New Way of Understanding Lifelong Health
Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are incidents that harm social, cognitive and emotional functioning and dramatically upset the safe, nurturing environments children need to thrive. Landmark research from the CDC and Kaiser Permanente has shown that ACEs can negatively impact the health and behavorial outcomes as an adult. The purpose of the series is to introduce participants to the ACE Study, facilitate discussions on how the study can inform their work and communities, and provide tools and resources to help prevent and mitigate the impact of toxic trauma on lifelong health.
Medical, educational, judicial, human services, and government professionals.
- Develop a basic understanding of the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study and the Iowa-specific data.
