ACES or Adverse Childhood Experiences is a broad term for a number of stressful and negative events that can happen in a child's life and affect them for years to come.
Well today, we are going to discuss what exactly this phrase means. We are joined by Andrew S. Garner, MD, Ph.D., FAAP, who is a pediatrician with Partners in Pediatrics in Westlake, Ohio, and is a member of the UH Rainbow Care Network, the region’s largest coordinated group of medical professionals providing care to children. He is also the Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.
In this episode, Dr. Garner & Melanie Cole cover the different types of ACES, toxic stress, and the differences between ACES & trauma.
