Episode 2: Protecting Children from the Negative Impact of ACEs with Dr. Amanda Sheffield Morris Rise Resilient

    • Relationships

"Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) can negatively influence development. However, the lifelong effects of positive childhood experiences (PACEs) can mitigate the detrimental effects of adverse ones. ACES and PACEs: A Developmental Perspective
In this episode of Rise Resilient, I speak with Dr. Amanda Sheffield Morris, the co-author of, "Adverse and Protective Childhood Experiences: A developmental Perspective". We chat about her research on the resources and relationships that can protect a child from the impacts of early childhood adversity, on how we can acknowledge and work through our own ACEs as parents, and what this all means in the time of COVID-19.
---------------
By integrating existing knowledge about ACEs with developmental research on preventing, buffering, and treating the effects of adversity, stress, and trauma on child development and subsequent health and functioning, this book identifies the most important of these PACEs.
It provides an interdisciplinary lens from which to view the multiple types of effects of enduring childhood experiences, and recommends evidence-based approaches for protecting children and repairing the enduring negative consequences of ACEs they face as adults.
Students, researchers, clinicians, and health-care providers can use this research to understand the science of early life adversity, lifelong resilience, and related intervention and prevention programming to help those suffering from the lifelong effects of ACEs.
Dr. Amanda Sheffield Morris is a Regents Professor and the George Kaiser Family Foundation Chair in Child Development at Oklahoma State University in the Department of Human Development and Family Science. She is also an adjunct professor at the Laureate Institute for Brain Research (LIBR) and a co-investigator on the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) national study. Dr. Morris is a developmental scientist with research interests in parenting, socio-emotional development, early life adversity, and risk and resilience. She is the Editor in Chief for the "Journal of Research on Adolescence" and is an Associate Editor for the journal "Adversity and Resilience Science: Research and Practice" published by Springer/Nature. She is co-author of the recently published book "Adverse and Protective Childhood Experiences: A Developmental Perspective" published by the American Psychological Association.
