Being a Trauma Informed Parent: Linking Childhood Trauma to Long-Term Health & Social Consequence

February 22, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Presented by Laurie Cavanaugh, CPSP, Regional Parent Support Coordinator

Traumatic childhood experiences such as abuse, neglect, domestic violence, or substance abuse in the home can have long-term physical, psychological, behavioral and economic consequences. The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study is a study that demonstrates the connection between childhood trauma and a wide array of physical and mental health problems. Despite the trauma in their lives, children can survive and even thrive. Protective factors, including healthy relationships with parents and caregivers, foster resilience in children and help them to overcome early adversity. Learn about ACEs and how individuals, families, and communities can influence the development of protective factors in a child’s life that can mitigate the impact of ACEs on his or her development. Target audience: parents/caregivers of children with behavioral health issues, however, all are welcome.
