The science of Positive and Adverse Childhood Experiences or PACES is rapidly growing. Childhood trauma has such an impact on our lives that the Centers for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics have partnered to raise awareness about prevention, building resilience, and healing. My guest,  Behavioral Pediatrician and the host of Let’s Talk Kids Health, Dr. Nerissa Bauer gives parents an update in this episode. We cover:

  • Define ACES and it’s impact on health
  • Ways to prevent ACES and toxic stress
  • Importance of parental well-being
  • Role of the community in addressing ACES

Thanks, Dr. Bauer!
