This video is a recording of a webinar entitled "Shifting the Paradigm: Preventing and Addressing Childhood Toxic Stress at the Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary Levels." The webinar was held on 5/3/16. Early life toxic stress, such as childhood abuse, neglect, and serious dysfunction are common, interrelated exposures that are associated with multiple risk behaviors and adverse health outcomes starting in adolescence, going into adulthood. For over 20 years, data from the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study, an epidemiological study, has demonstrated the relationship between these childhood toxic stressors with negative health sequelae throughout the lifespan. The aim of this session is to provide an overview of the ACE Study findings and present a theoretical framework for the prevention of childhood toxic stress at the primary, secondary and tertiary levels, as well as present current efforts that apply the framework.
