The economic and social consequences of the pandemic are particularly acute for children and adults, suffering from the long-term effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE). Health issues for this patient population are often manifested into mental and physical illnesses due to the overwhelming isolation of social distancing, economic disparities, and the uncertainty caused by the pandemic. Patients of all ages that struggle with chronic physical or mental illnesses are often viewed critically by others as having contributed to their illnesses primarily due to lifestyle choices and high-risk behaviors. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, healthcare questions often focus on “what is wrong with you” rather than “what happened to you?”. In this webinar, we will discuss the effects of adverse childhood experiences on children and adults, and how the pandemic may be a trigger for unhealthy choices, substance abuse, despair, suicidal tendencies, hostility, violence, or any combination of these unhealthy reactions. We will review the importance and tactics for trauma-informed care and available resources.
