This guide provides healthcare students and professionals with a foundational background on adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) – traumatic early life experiences, which can have a profound impact on health in later life. ACEs can include being a victim of abuse, neglect or exposure to risk in the home or community. How healthcare students and professionals learn to recognize, react and respond to persons affected by trauma will lay the foundation for their relationships with patients. This book intentionally uses micro-to-macro lenses accompanied by a structural competency framework to elucidate health implications across the lifespan. It explores the nature of adversity and its effects on the physical, emotional, cognitive and social health of individuals, communities and society. The book, written by two experienced psychiatric nurses, will equip healthcare students and professionals with an understanding for critical change in practice and offer action steps designed to assist them with prevention and intervention approaches and steps to help build resilience. This book will be core reading for healthcare students within mental health, pediatric and primary care nursing courses. It will also be of interest to students and professionals in the social work, psychology and public health fields who are exploring resilience and trauma-informed practices

Infection with human immunodeficiency virus remains a major public health concern in the United States. Although improvements in treatment have increased longevity and improved quality of life, infection with HIV presents a significant burden on the American health care system, and remains a leading cause of death in certain age groups. A number of at-risk groups and risk factors for HIV infection have been identified, with individuals belonging to more than one at-risk group experiencing cumulatively increased risk of infection. Men who have sex with men (MSM) account for the majority of new diagnoses, with MSM sharing risk factors such as being African American or injecting drugs being particularly at risk. Exposure to childhood trauma is another identified risk factor for infection, and MSM have been shown to report such exposure more frequently than non-MSM. This theoretically makes MSM who have experienced childhood trauma an especially high-risk group. This study explored attitudes toward HIV among anonymous individuals targeted on local gay-themed lifestyle websites. Perceived risk, severity, and threat of HIV were examined, as well as self-efficacy to avoid infection, number of insertive partners for anal intercourse, and testing habits. In addition, exposure to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) was evaluated. Attitudes toward HIV did not correlate significantly with exposure to trauma in this sample. However, exposure to trauma was associated with an increased risk of insertive sexual partners, specifically exposure to emotional abuse and emotional neglect. Although other studies have found a similar increase in risky sexual behavior among individuals who have experienced childhood trauma, few have examined this as a possible long-term consequence to emotional abuse specifically. Further research should examine this possible association so that individuals who report emotional trauma during childhood can be identified and preventative measures can be initiated. Keywords: MSM, HIV, Health Belief Model, adverse childhood experiences, perceived risk, perceived severity, perceived threat, self-efficacy

A “courageous, compassionate, and rigorous every-person’s guide” (Christina Bethell, PhD, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health) that shows the link between Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and adult illnesses such as heart disease, autoimmune disease, and cancer—Childhood Disrupted also explains how to cope and heal from these emotional traumas. Your biography becomes your biology. The emotional trauma we suffer as children not only shapes our emotional lives as adults, but it also affects our physical health, longevity, and overall wellbeing. Scientists now know on a bio-chemical level exactly how parents’ chronic fights, divorce, death in the family, being bullied or hazed, and growing up with a hypercritical, alcoholic, or mentally ill parent can leave permanent, physical “fingerprints” on our brains. When children encounter sudden or chronic adversity, stress hormones cause powerful changes in the body, altering the body’s chemistry. The developing immune system and brain react to this chemical barrage by permanently resetting children’s stress response to “high,” which in turn can have a devastating impact on their mental and physical health as they grow up. Donna Jackson Nakazawa shares stories from people who have recognized and overcome their adverse experiences, shows why some children are more immune to stress than others, and explains why women are at particular risk. “Groundbreaking” (Tara Brach, PhD, author of Radical Acceptance) in its research, inspiring in its clarity, Childhood Disrupted explains how you can reset your biology—and help your loved ones find ways to heal. “A truly important gift of understanding—illuminates the heartbreaking costs of childhood trauma and like good medicine offers the promising science of healing and prevention” (Jack Kornfield, author of A Path With Heart).

Recent crises—whether policy-induced (e.g., family separation at the Mexico/U.S. border) or natural disaster-related (e.g., hurricanes in Florida and North Carolina and wildfires in California)—have galvanized the attention of the U.S. and international public on the plight of children who endure these traumatic events. The sheer enormity of such wrenching events tend to overshadow the trauma endured by many children whose everyday life circumstances fall short of affording them a safe, stable, and nurturing environment. At the national level, three rounds of data collection spanning January 2008 through April 2014 constituted the National Survey of Children’s Exposure to Violence (NatSCEV) that—according to Finkelhor, Turner, Shattuck, and Hambly (2013) in reporting on the 2011 round—assessed “a wide range of childhood victimizations” (pp. 614-615). Among many other findings, Finkelor et al. concluded that “overall, 57.7% of the children and youth had experienced or witnessed at least 1 to 5 aggregate exposures (assaults and bullying, sexual victimization, maltreatment by a caregiver, property victimization, or witnessing victimization) in the year before this survey” (p. 619). According to the recent re-visiting of NatSCEV II by Turner et al. (2017), “almost 1 in 4 children and adolescents ages 5-15 in the United States lived in family environments with only modest levels of safety, stability, and nurturance, while about 1 in 15 had consistently low levels across multiple domains” (p. 8). Adverse childhood events (ACEs) have both immediate and long-term impacts on children’s health and well-being (Banyard, Hambly, & Grych, 2017; Bowen, Jarrett, Stahl, Forrester, & Valmaggia, 2018; Walker & Walsh, 2015). Children do not shed their entanglement with ACEs at the schoolroom door. To highlight just one study, Jimenez, Wade, Lin, Morrow, & Reichman (2016) conducted a secondary analysis of a national urban birth cohort and found that experiencing ACEs in early childhood was “associated with below-average, teacher-reported academic and literacy skills and [more] behavior problems in kindergarten” (p. 1). Chapter Proposals For this fifth volume in the Current Perspectives on School/University/Community Research series, we invite chapter proposals from authors who are engaged in school-university-community collaborative educational research focused on the alleviation of the educational impact of adverse childhood experiences.

Delinquency, crime committed by youth, continues to persist even though recent estimates show decline. Foster care youth are especially at risk as they are overrepresented in the criminal justice system and have a higher likelihood of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). ACEs have been directly correlated with crime and delinquency for both adults and youth. However, there has not been much research done on the special population of foster care youth and how their experiences relate to delinquency. This study examined this relationship, as well as how gender differences affect the relationship between ACEs and delinquency for foster care youth. This study utilized secondary data obtained through ICPSR from Cusick, Courtney, Havlicek, and Hess (2010). The researcher examined how ACEs relate to three delinquency outcomes: foster care youth’s self-reported arrest record, official arrest record, and self-reported responses on their diversity of delinquency. The researcher found that alcohol or substance abuse diagnosis was significant in predicting self-reported arrest, official arrest, and the measured delinquency items for the total, male-only, and female-only populations. Caregiver closeness and mental health diagnosis were significant for the male-only population and not having a mother or stepmother was significant for the female-only population in predicting delinquency.

The authors adverse childhood experiences are an example of how society has mistreated children over many years, while pretending to be a sophisticated, first world country. The reality is very different. Children, and there are many thousands of them, have had their life chances completely destroyed by adults who abused their power and influence. The war, and it is a war, against the violation of children in our country and many others, has only just begun. It will be a long war. The ACEs movement is one of the battalions fighting for change. Graham Wilmer MBE - Director Lantern Project This is an open and unrestricted account of the impact on ACEs for not only children but adults. The bravery of the Author to place this in the public arena is not unrecognised. Having established the England North ACEs Network, it has been a pleasure to work with The Cumbria Resilience Project and ACEs Cumbria Forum and to support their efforts to become an ACEs aware region. The momentum of this movement in the North is testimony to those who are 'driving' the bus forward and believe that it doesn't have to be this way. This book is written to allow anyone to understand what ACEs are and why they are important for every single person no matter who you are. Dr Wendy Thorley PhD, M.Ed., B.A (Hons) Ed. R.G.N.

There is now ample evidence from the preclinical and clinical fields that early life trauma has both dramatic and long-lasting effects on neurobiological systems and functions that are involved in different forms of psychopathology as well as on health in general. To date, a comprehensive review of the recent research on the effects of early and later life trauma is lacking. This book fills an obvious gap in academic and clinical literature by providing reviews which summarize and synthesize these findings. Topics considered and discussed include the possible biological and neuropsychological effects of trauma at different epochs and their effect on health. This book will be essential reading for psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, mental health professionals, social workers, pediatricians and specialists in child development.

Adverse Childhood Experiences, Attachment, and the Early Years Learning Environment explores the concept of learning by presenting research and illustrations from practice on three major topics: adverse childhood experiences, attachment, and environment. Each child has a unique reaction to adversity in the early years, and the book discusses the effect upon approach and avoidance motivation for learning, and the rationale of trauma-informed practice. The influence from a secure attachment figure is explored, and links between emotions and involvement are presented. The book highlights the current indoor and outdoor use of natural green spaces as a response to attention-fatigue and promotes comprehension of the issues in a context of attention restoration theory. Intervention for extended families is presented as an approach to supporting development and attainment in each generation, and to achieving a legacy beyond the professional network. This book will appeal to academics, researchers, and postgraduate students in the fields of early years care and education. It will also appeal to those working within children's services.

One day Donna Jackson Nakazawa found herself lying on the floor to recover from climbing the stairs. That’s when it hit her. She was managing the symptoms of the autoimmune disorders that had plagued her for a decade, but she had lost her joy. As a science journalist, she was curious to know what mind-body strategies might help her. As a wife and mother she was determined to get her life back. Over the course of one year, Nakazawa researches and tests a variety of therapies including meditation, yoga, and acupuncture to find out what works. But the discovery of a little-known branch of research into Adverse Childhood Experiences causes her to have an epiphany about her illness that not only stuns her—it turns her life around. Perfect for readers of Gretchen Rubin's The Happiness Project, Nakazawa shares her unexpected discoveries, amazing improvements, and shows readers how they too can find their own last best cure.
