ACES II: Intervention
ACES (Adverse Childhood Experiences Study) has become more and more essential to the knowledge base for a practicing mental health clinician. ACES makes the critical link between traumatic childhood experiences and significant adolescent and adult medical and mental health concerns. The study found that children who experience serious abuse or neglect, later have a much higher risk of developing mental health issues of depression, suicidality, and chemical dependency. These same traumatized children are also at significantly higher risk for medical issues including morbidity, premature mortality, obesity, hypertension, cigarette smoking, lung disease, liver disease, and heart disease.
This presentation will build on the previous presentation, with a focus on understanding and treating interpersonal trauma. Several case examples will illustrate the various outcomes of trauma in client’s lives.
