Preventing Adverse Childhood Experiences With Concrete and Economic Supports
Many of the clients we serve are grappling with the long-term effects of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). As psychologists, you are in a position to address these effects but also to help prevent their occurrence. Dr. Klika will review the research on concrete and economic supports (e.g., paid family leave, childcare subsidies, earned income tax credits) for preventing ACEs and will talk about the role of psychologists in connecting families to these resources.
