Toxic stress during childhood can harm the most basic levels of the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems, and such exposures can even alter the physical structure of DNA (epigenetic effects). Childhood maltreatment has been linked to various changes in brain structure and function and stress-responsive neurobiological systems with negative downstream impacts on health, emotional well-being, and longevity.
In this presentation, we will explore the mechanisms by which adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) exert their negative impacts. In understanding the effects on the brain, body, and behavior, we will look to solutions that can move us toward improved health outcomes.
Upon completion of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Identify Adverse Childhood Experiences
- Explain the mechanisms by which ACEs exert longer-term negative impacts
- List 3 solutions to reduce the morbidity of ACEs Addiction Professionals
