Adverse Childhood Experiences: epigenetics, impacts, and moving towards solutions

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 a variety of 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 brain, body, and behavior, we will then look to solutions that can move us in the direction of improved health outcomes.

Obectives:

  • Identify Adverse Childhood Experiences.
  • Explain the mechanisms by which ACEs exert longer term negative impacts.
  • List 3 solutions to reduce the morbidity of ACEs.
