Addressing COVID Trauma for Children and Providers

This presentation will begin with a definition and review of childhood trauma and the impact on development. Objectives include how stress impacts the body and produces a variety of behavioral outcomes. A detailed discussion of information on the prevalence and impact of trauma will be provided from data using the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study. In considering this information, we will discuss how early trauma impacts the developing brain and how trauma impacts individuals throughout the lifespan. We will provide examples of what children experiencing stress may look like and how to respond to negative emotions in children and adults.
