Practice and Policy Lecture Series: Adverse Childhood Experiences
Research has firmly established that adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) have significant impact on adult health risk behaviors, physical and mental health, and mortality. Furthermore, these impacts are more pronounced among vulnerable and disenfranchised populations. Such populations are served by an array of public social services that could benefit from trauma informed practices across multiple systems levels. Conventional and siloed approaches that separately address the social needs, mental health issues, and physical health problems are arguably ineffective and insufficient to effect improvements in mental and physical health outcomes. Integrative approaches in service delivery, research and training which bridge practice approaches are essential to address the complex sequelae of ACEs. This presentation will provide a brief overview of ACE research with an emphasis on Oklahoma based studies and highlight promising practices for multiple domains of practice and system levels.
