Impact of Trauma on the Developing Child

Session Time

June 28

John will provide an overview of the Adverse Childhood Experiences study, the largest longitudinal study of its kind, and highlight the findings, in keeping with new advances in brain science, that provide extraordinary insights into how trauma impacts children and interferes with their healthy development. Left untreated, trauma will haunt a child into adulthood and create significant cognitive, emotional, social and physical health problems that diminish learning, quality of life and longevity. Fortunately, there is so much we can do to help and John will touch on some of these exciting and promising practices.
