Cracked Up: The Long Arm of Childhood Trauma
March 13 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join trauma specialist Dr. Jan Beauregard and other members of the
NVCP panel for a screening of the movie Cracked Up: The Long Arm of
Childhood Trauma. Dr. Beauregard, as well as other members of the panel
will be reviewing and discussing research related to the impact of early
life adversity on people, their lives, their medical history and what
goes on in the brain. ACE factors are the single biggest contributor to
the risk for psychiatric and medical disorders, more than any single
gene of factor. High ACE scores increase the risk for anxiety,
depression, substance abuse, heart disease, stroke and suicide. Learn
how to better apply the results from longitudinal studies and how this
information might be utilized for early intervention.
