Adverse Childhood Experiences:
Implications for Policymakers and Practitioners

David Murphey, Ph.D., research fellow and DataBank director at Child Trends, will review the science of childhood trauma, and the prevalence of childhood experiences that can create it. Trauma, or toxic stress, can have lasting harmful effects on multiple body-systems, affecting lifetime health and well-being. Drawing on recently released data collected nationwide, the presentation will highlight implications for those who work with children and families, or on their behalf.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify some of the adverse childhood experiences (“ACEs”) that can create toxic stress
  • Understand the overall prevalence of ACEs, as well as how that varies according to type of ACE, region of the country, and race/Hispanic origin.
  • Identify some strategies that can reduce the negative impacts of ACEs

Effectively Addressing Trauma in
Healthy Relationship Education

Childhood trauma impacts growth and success in all areas of a young person’s life, including their capacity to form and maintain healthy relationships.  How do we most effectively address the needs of traumatized youth in relationship skills programs?

First, everyone in an organization needs to understand trauma, including administrators, supervisors and instructors. Then, we need to provide young people relief from distressing experiences by teaching them effective skills to calm and manage their emotions.

Learn some modest yet proven programmatic changes that will enhance your organization’s effectiveness with young people who have experienced adversity in their childhoods.
