Adverse experiences of childhood can account for 32.4% of all mental health disorders, 41.2% if disruptive behavior disorders, 32.4% of anxiety disorders, 26.2% of mood disorders, and 21% of substance use disorders. These disorders are linked to early death, higher levels of incarceration and recidivism, reliance on social services, unemployment, and shorter life spans. As many of the individuals with substance use disorders fit within the definition of developmental trauma, addiction professionals need to know the dynamics of childhood trauma and neglect and their impact on the course of treatment and how to providing trauma-informed care (TIC).

Learning Objectives
  • Gain an understanding of the history behind the adverse childhood experiences and developmental trauma.
  • Identify adverse childhood experiences and developmental trauma in the treatment setting and client behavior. 
  • Identify appropriate intervention techniques to improve outcomes.
