Screening for Childhood Trauma
Childhood trauma is not something you just get over when you grow up. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) has real tangible effects on the developing brain and body. These children are at a much higher risk for developing depression, eating disorders, cancers and even heart disease.
Participants will learn to screen individuals who are at higher risk for developing diseases simply by gaining information about their patient’s childhood history.
