Description: NCCAN Webcast Series Seminar 3 – In recent years, knowledge about the long term consequences of early childhood adversity has increased exponentially, leading to significant changes in how the field is thinking about preventing child maltreatment, addressing trauma, and promoting child wellbeing. It has been almost 20 years since one of the seminal studies linking childhood trauma to long-term health and social consequences was first published: Kaiser Permanente’s initial study of 17,000 adults reporting on their ‘Adverse Childhood Experiences.’ What have we learned since then? What does other national data say about the scope, scale and impact of early childhood adversity, especially for our most vulnerable families? How are states using this information to create policy? How are practices and systems changing in response to the evidence from the ACE study and other research on early trauma and adversity?
