Impact of ACEs and Adoption of Trauma-Informed Approaches in Integrated Settings


April 18, 2018

1:00pm- 2:30pm EST

We know that trauma is prevalent and can impact an individual throughout a whole lifespan based on the ACE Study conducted by the CDC and Kaiser Permanente.
We can therefore expect that a significant percentage of patients served in integrated care settings have been exposed to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). Signs and symptoms include: not showing up for appointments or frequently showing up without an appointment; difficulty adhering to treatment goals; limited or no improvement in health conditions; and multiple psychiatric diagnoses and medications. 

Join the SAMHSA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions for this webinar to learn more about trauma and its impact, hear the case for adopting trauma-informed approaches, and take back to your organization a methodology for implementing trauma-informed care.


After this webinar, participants will learn to:
  • Recall two reasons why it is important to adopt trauma-informed approaches in integrated care settings
  • Identify three strategies that can be used immediately to minimize or prevent triggers
  • Design a plan to implement trauma-informed approaches in their setting
