Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are potentially traumatic events that occur in childhood that can result in toxic stress. When the body’s stress response stays activated over a long period of time, the result is increased inflammation and hormone disruption.
Research has found that an adult who has one or more ACEs that were not mitigated by protective factors has an increased risk for many chronic diseases. Experiencing toxic stress has direct negative effects on the body and utilizing unhealthy coping behaviors to deal with the effects of trauma also has damaging effects on the body.
In this webinar, Kathleen Lisson, CLT, offers beneficial stress reduction skills for you to help reduce unhealthy coping behaviors and stress levels. Help increase your patients’ resilience (and perhaps your own) and enable them to bounce forward instead of just bouncing back after adversity.
