The Adverse Childhood Experiences Study links childhood trauma to adult chronic medical illness, behavioral health disorders, and early death. This study, conducted by the CDC and Kaiser Permanente Health Services will show the alarming prevalence of childhood trauma among a group of 17000 typical American participants of the study. Attendees will learn about the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study, the effects of childhood trauma in adult life, the neurobiology of child trauma, the role of Attachment Theory plays in childhood trauma, and current attachment based treatments for trauma.
