Trauma Informed Care for Adverse Childhood Experiences

More than 60% of adults in the US are impacted by adverse childhood experiences, shares the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). These difficult or stressful childhood experiences can impact people of all races, socioeconomic statuses, and geographic locations. 

Adverse childhood experiences may include:

  • Emotional, physical, or sexual abuse
  • Emotional or physical neglect
  • Domestic violence
  • Divorce or separation of parents
  • Household substance use
  • Family member incarceration
  • Household mental illness

If left untreated, these experiences can potentially lead to future behavioral issues, substance use problems, and even life-threatening health conditions. That’s why at Integrative Life Center, we provide holistic trauma therapy for signs of repressed childhood trauma in adults and kids that helps you find hope and lasting positive change.
