ACEs Too High: Prevention and Intervention Strategies to Address Trauma and Reduce Health Disparities

ACEs Too High: Prevention and Intervention Strategies to Address Trauma and Reduce Health Disparities

Monday, Jun 7, 2021

This seminar introduces key concepts related to the implementation of trauma-informed care and provides a clear picture of how trauma and health disparities are statistically related. Research and clinical evidence documents that trauma-informed approaches to the delivery of behavioral health services are effective. Inherent in trauma-informed practice is an understanding of what comprises trauma, as well as an awareness of the impact it can have across settings, services, and populations. It involves thinking about trauma in different ways and altering service practices to create a therapeutic environment that provides opportunities for survivors to rebuild a sense of control, empowerment, and balance in their lives. Given that toxic stress and trauma have been linked to an increased likelihood of a variety of physical and mental illnesses, increasing the utilization of trauma-informed practices can help to reduce health disparities. This presenter is supported through the partnership between the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Social Work and the NC AHEC Program. This program is provided in collaboration with the NC AHEC Program Office. Image removed.
