Hey Mamas! This week, at the Zen(ish) Mommy podcast we’re talking about trauma and its long-term effects with expert Sarah Marikos, Executive Director of the ACE Resource Network. Sarah discusses with us a now-renown CDC and Kaiser Permanente study that explored the link between early childhood trauma called Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES), and later health complications. In this study, experts found that the greater the number of ACES, the more likely a person would experience poor health and other complications, such as diabetes, heart disease, poor academic achievement, substance abuse, and more. However, Sarah’s mission is to help spread awareness about this research, as well as to share the tools and strategies to help mitigate the effects of trauma, for both adults and children.
We hope you join us for this insightful episode.
