Trauma Focus

Many kids are repeatedly exposed to Adverse Childhood Experiences. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are defined as exposure to physical, emotional, or sexual abuse; neglect; parental mental illness; substance use or incarceration; domestic violence and/or parental separation. The child’s ‘fight or flight’ system is activated so often that it stays on, leading to high levels of emergency hormones that change the structure and function of children’s developing brains and bodies. The more ACEs a child has been exposed to, the higher the risk of developing chronic illnesses such as heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, depression, and even cancer.

In our center, we assess children for exposure to Adverse Childhood Experiences and implement a multidisciplinary treatment plan using evidence-based and promising practices.
