Impact of Adverse Childhood Events on Student Mental Health
Robert Althoff, MD, PhD
June 13, 2023
Session 5: 4:00-5:30PM EDT
This webinar is designed to provide clear tools to effectively screen for pediatric trauma and adversity in the school setting. Traumatic stress can be a component of multiple psychiatric disorders and is much more common than previously thought. The effects of stress in the body are associated not just with psychiatric symptoms but also with symptoms of chronic cardiovascular diseases and other chronic, debilitating disorders. Failure to diagnose and treat the effects of trauma can lead to significant morbidity and mortality with increasing suicide rates in the population of adolescents. This webinar will describe the presenting problems, discuss comorbidities that are common, and describe practical screening and prevention tools for schools.
This program is intended for psychologists, social workers, educators, and license mental health counselors.
By the end of this training session, participants should be able to:
- Describe how to identify trauma-related disorders in children and adolescents.
- Discuss the presentation of trauma-related illness in children and describe their progression to adult disorders, both psychiatric and nonpsychiatric.
- Discuss the role of prevention in adversity-exposed youth.
