With 82.7 percent of U.S. respondents to an international population survey of 24 countries indicating that they have experienced some form of trauma — from threatened death, serious injury, sexual violence, or unexpected death of a loved one — our nation ranks among the highest of those surveyed.
Analysis of data from the National Survey of Children’s Health shows at least 38 percent of children in the United States have had at least one Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE), such as witnessing or being a victim of violence, death or incarceration of a parent, or living with someone with a drug or alcohol problem.
Exposure to adverse events can impact physical and mental health and well-being, derailing healthy development in children and increasing the long-term risks for smoking, alcoholism, depression, heart and liver diseases, and dozens of other illnesses and unhealthy behaviors.
Linda Grabbe, PhD, FNP-BC, PMHNP-BC, this year’s distinguished lecturer, will focus on trauma's impact and on methods of delivering trauma-informed care.
